Placeholder Image

The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on May 28 to discuss and have the opportunity to provide input and jointly develop the programs under the “No Child Left Behind” Act.  These programs include Title I, Title II Part A, Title II Part D, Title V and the Even Start Family Literacy Program.  

The meeting will be offered during the morning and again in the afternoon.  The first meeting will begin at 10 a.m. and the evening meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of the Board of Education Office located at 405 North Ash St. in Springfield.

Parents will be given an opportunity to have input and jointly develop a plan that will best serve the students in our system.  There will also be a time to evaluate the effectiveness of our existing program to determine if all academic needs are being met.

An overview of the curriculum and the various programs will be explained.  The “No Child Left Behind” Act will be covered, including aspects of the law regarding school choice and supplemental services.  There will be a time for discussion along with a question and answer period where parents can voice their concerns.

The morning sign-in will begin at 9:45 a.m. and the evening sign-in will begin at 5:45 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served prior to each of the sessions.  For more information, contact Dr. Norma Wallace at 754-5628.
