Community Listening Sessions with the Duval County School Board. Join us in developing the future vision of our schools.

School Board to host community meetings around future vision for schools

Oct. 1, 2020 – To gather feedback from the community about the future vision of Duval schools, the School Board will host a series of community meetings, with the first one set for Monday, Oct. 5 at Raines High School.

The purpose is to develop a strategic plan for the school district, a document that outlines the concrete priorities, values, and goals that will guide the district for the next several years.

But this plan cannot be completed without first understanding the thoughts of the community.

“To be true partners in education, board members need the opportunity to engage with all members of our community so we can understand their collective vision for our schools,” said Board Chair Warren A. Jones. “Only with our community’s feedback can we develop a strategic plan that honors the values of our community.”

For example, says Jones, members of the community can provide the Board with direction on where to focus resources whether it’s investment in things like new technology or new programs.

All members of the community are invited to join at one of the meetings below. Note that face coverings will be required, and social distancing will be implemented.
