The Texas Education Agency invites WSISD parents and staff to a regional meeting in which the State Board of Education is seeking input for the new Long-Range Plan for Public Education.
A community meeting will be held Tuesday, Dec. 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Region 11 Education Service Center, 1451 S. Cherry Lane in White Settlement (next to Cooperative Industries).
“State Board of Education members are meeting with Texans around the state because we want to hear firsthand what their concerns and hopes for the Texas public schools are going forward. Our goal is to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges. Information gained through these community meetings, a statewide online survey, and the work of the Long-Range Plan for Public Schools Steering Committee will be used to craft a strategic plan for schools through the year 2030, corresponding with the Texas Higher Education 60x30 Strategic Plan,” said SBOE Chair Donna Bahorich.
The 18-member steering committee, made up of educators, parents, state and local board members, business officials, college professors, state agency representatives and a student, will discuss two topics: family empowerment and engagement and equity and access to both funding and advanced courses.
