TCPS to host Spring Community Forums

Tazewell County Public Schools will once again host their Community Forums in the month of February, throughout the three regions.
These forums will be a great way for TCPS parents and community members to "Give Your Voice"  to TCPS in five sessions focusing on Elementary Education, Middle School Education, Secondary Education, Career and Technical and Technology.
Graham hosts the first forum on Monday, February 17 from 7-9 p.m.,  at Graham Middle School. Tazewell will host their forum Tuesday, February 18 from 7-9 p.m.,  at Tazewell Middle School. The spring open forums will wrap up on February 24, with Richlands hosting the final forum from 7-9 p.m.,  at Richlands Middle School.
Each forum will have five sessions, each 30 minutes long,  led by Central Office Supervisors and staff where ideas will be formulated around topics highlighted as "priorities" at the fall forums. These items were discussed recently with committee members in the five areas.
After the fall forums, Central Office Supervisors met in committees made up of community volunteers who attended the fall forums, principals in the region and staff members. Ideas that were designated as hot topics and priorities for the area were once again discussed in depth.
"These forums are a great way to increase community and parent involvement. The ideas that are shared,  are on the forefront of instruction and technology in the region. With community members and parents in each of the three areas, sharing hot topics and priorities for the schools in their region. The ideas were then combined together and discussed within committees. Every conversation point during the fall forum was reviewed by Dr. Meyer, Christine Kinser, and the supervisors, so the ideas were seen and heard from those participating," said Kayla Myers, public relations and communications specialist for Tazewell County Public Schools.
In the spring the setup will be a little different in that Tazewell County Public Schools will center the topic of discussion around the fall ideas and how they could work within the school system and fit within the budget. Two new ideas on the table for discussion,  the gifted and talented program and the literacy initiative, these topics  will be discussed within the three educational sessions. New ideas will of coarse be taken from community members and parents.
These forums are a twice a year event for TCPS, one will be hosted in the fall and then again in the spring.
