CHARLOTTE -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools parents will get another chance to weigh in on how the school system is doing. That will be at a town hall meeting Monday night, which is part of an effort by Superintendent Heath Morrison to get to know the district.
When Morrison was hired this summer, he got an earful about how CMS didn't do a good job communicating with families. The town hall meeting that will happen at Harding High School Monday is part of Morrison's efforts to change that.
This will be the second of seven meetings that are open to the public. The sessions allow people to offer thoughts about what's working in CMS and what needs improvement. They also include small group discussions.
Morrison says he'll use all the information he learns through these meetings to craft his long-term plan for CMS, which he plans to unveil in December.
At the first town hall meeting, Morrison heard from folks about a wide range of issues from teacher pay to dealing with special needs students.
Morrison is also holding a separate series of meetings just for CMS employees. One of those sessions will happen Tuesday night at Butler High School.
Monday's session at Harding High School starts at 6 p.m.
