DPS - Listening and Learning

A hallmark of a great community is knowing both what is great about it and what could use some work.  The folks at Durham Public Schools feel the same way, apparently.  They are reaching out to the community to collect feed back that they think will be useful as they create their new strategic plan.

Dubbed the Listening and Learning Tour, they will conduct four public town hall-style meetings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. The four meetings are scheduled as follows:
  • Monday, September 20, Hayti Heritage Center
  • Wednesday, September 22, Little River Community Center
  • Tuesday, September 28, Southwest Elementary School
  • Tuesday, October 5, Spring Valley Elementary School

 Community members will be asked for input on the following questions: 
  • What should become the standard in Durham Public Schools within the next ten years?
  • Of those things, what should we have accomplished in three years?
  • What is your role in accomplishing our goals?
  • What is going well?
  • What needs improvement?
  • What innovative ideas can we implement in Durham Public Schools?
