Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Superintendent James Merrill is inviting WCPSS employees, parents, and the public to share their thoughts, concerns, and priorities for WCPSS in a series of community input events entitled Superintendent’s Direct Line. The first session is slated for Thursday, January 23, at East Wake High.
“This is especially important at this time of year,” said Dr. Merrill, “as we work on the budget and plans of action for the 2014-2015 school year.”
Dr. Merrill has reserved the first hour-and-a-half of each event specifically for teachers and other WCPSS employees. The last hour-and-a-half is open to parents and the public. Interested speakers may begin signing up on-site at 4:00 p.m. each day in the lobby of the school auditorium. Each speaker is allotted three minutes and one appearance at the Superintendent’s Direct Line events.
Speakers are reminded that the Superintendent’s Direct Line is a public event; therefore, personnel issues should not be voiced during this time. Caution should be exercised before sharing private student matters.
Dr. Merrill welcomes the opportunity to hear what’s on the minds of Wake’s citizens. “I encourage everyone who cares about Wake schools to join us. This is a time to listen and let our community do the talking.”
