Dear Edi­tor: I would like to thank the cit­i­zens of New­ton County, District 1 who at­tended my “School Board on Your Cor­ner” Pub­lic Fo­rum at Al­covy High School on Thurs­day, July 28 at 7 p.m. Stu­dents, par­ents, teach­ers, PTO lead­ers, school ad­min­is­tra­tors, busi­ness own­ers, se­niors and oth­ers joined me in a healthy dis­cus­sion of top­ics in­clud­ing the fol­low­ing: the Vi­sion for Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion in Ge­or­gia, Next Gen­er­a­tion Learn­ing Com­mu­ni­ties, test data, New­ton Col­lege and Ca­reer Academy, Om­buds­man, school dis­ci­pline, in­school sus­pen­sion, new high school sched­ules, tiered bus sched­ules, leg­isla­tive up­dates, ad- equate yearly progress, and No Child Left Be­hind. I am proud to serve District 1 on the New­ton County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion and am op­ti­mistic about the fu­ture of our sys­tem. I would like to thank the ad­min­is­tra­tive team of Al­covy High School for al­low­ing me to use their fa­cil­ity. I en­cour­age cit­i­zens who were un­able to at­tend to join me when fu­ture fo­rums are an­nounced.
