GRPS superintendent continues Transformation Plan listening tour

Superintendent Teresa Weatherall Neal will meet with parents, students, community members and school staff this week to get feedback on the GRPS Transformation Plan. Community input will help shape the next phase of the plan, which has been the framework for district-wide improvements and priorities since Neal took office in January 2012.

Neal will hold meetings tonight, March 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Aberdeen School, 928 Aberdeen St. NE; and Wednesday, March 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Union High School, 1800 Tremont NW. Those who cannot attend are invited to fill out the Transformation Plan Listening Tour 2017-18 Survey.

Neal held meetings last week at Gerald R. Ford Academic Center and Cesar Chavez Elementary.
