“Brevard Public Schools is eager to engage a cross section of community members in enlightening discussions directed towards the gathering of constructive feedback and collaborative solutions,” according to Michelle Irwin, Director of District Communications.The event will have several dialogue sessions – Curriculum and Instruction, Financial Transparency and Accountability, Community Relations and Communications, District Resources and Facilities, Diversity and Equity.
BPS has been accused in recent months by parent groups and the Brevard County Commission of displaying lax communication and racial inequities during the process of closing three schools. Yesterday, a Brevard Circuit Court judge denied a parent-led injunction to stop the closings.The event will have a keynote speaker – Keith Winsten from the Brevard Zoo – and several dialogue sessions.
According to a release, “The Brevard Zoo was created by and through the grass root efforts of a community brought together for a common purpose. Mr. Winsten will share his insights into what occurred to make the dream of the Brevard Zoo a reality.”BPS is requesting an RSVP to the event by phone call (321-633-100, Ext. 795) or by email ([email protected]).
