School and Community Forums
Join the Ann Arbor Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Jeanice Swift, on her school tour – visiting, listening and learning about our neighborhood schools!
Beginning on Thursday, September 19 at Angell Elementary School at 6:30 pm, Dr. Swift will visit each school in the district to meet, listen and learn from school staff and school families. These visits will conclude in December just before winter break. Periodically throughout these fall visits, Dr. Swift will share some initial impressions. A final report, Listen and Learn: We Are Ann Arbor, will be presented to the Board of Education and the community in January 2014.
At each of the schools, Dr. Swift will first meet with staff at the end of the school day then meet with parents, guardians, and community members in the evening. She will ask her guests to consider four questions as she gains knowledge about the school district, individual schools and the community AAPS serves. Guests will be asked in small groups to discuss:
Additionally, these questions are available for citizen responses online:
