Discipline, Achievement, School Assignment
Sutton Invites Parents, Community to Ask Questions, Get Answers
RALEIGH—Wake County School Board member Keith Sutton will host a public forum called “Connecting Policy and Achievement - A Town Hall Meeting" on Saturday, August 27 from 9 a.m. to noon at Walnut Creek Elementary School, 2600 Sunnybrook Road in Raleigh.
Sutton has enlisted the assistance of The Flood Group, a consulting firm specializing in education issues, to help with facilitating the discussion.
“I invite parents and other community members to come out, bring their questions, and obtain a better understanding of the policy changes and the transformation that our school system is undergoing. These changes affect student assignment, discipline and behavior, math placement decisions, and how we view student achievement. This is a great opportunity for the residents of District 4 and throughtout Wake County to hear more than just "sound bites" about important decisions we are grappling with,” said Sutton.
Forum presenters on the agenda are Dr. Dudley Flood, retired educator; Corey Moore, Principal of Walnut Creek Elementary School; Vonda Martin, Assistant Principal of Walnut Creek Elementary School; and, Marvin Pittman, retired educator.
