AUBURN | Residents, parents, students and employees of the Auburn Enlarged City School District can now drop in and visit with Superintendent Constance Evelyn during an office hour.
From 3 to 4 p.m. Fridays, members of the school community can stop in and meet with Evelyn for 20-minute intervals, according to the district.
Evelyn said she wants to connect with the school community regularly and often to learn as much as she can about the district and to inform people of the district's vision.
"It was actually something that I wrote into my superintendent entry plan," she said Thursday. "One of the main goals of the plan is to ensure a reciprocal opportunity for folks to get to know me and for me to get to know the community."
Evelyn said she wants to make sure the district's vision is in line with the needs and concerns of the school community.
"It should not be the world according to the superintendent," she said.
Evelyn said no one dropped by last week, the first Friday of her office hours, and said due to an unavoidable conflict today, she will have to resume the office hours on Oct. 12.
"I look forward to any discussion I can have with the members of the community that are concerned about the education of our children," she said.
Evelyn said people in Auburn have expressed their approval at having the chance to visit with her and talk to her on a weekly basis, and she said she plans to learn a lot from the meetings.
"The more I learn, the more I learn," she said.
