Community members will get an opportunity to voice their concerns about Dayton Public Schools at a town hall meeting set for Thursday.
DPS officials say the discussion will center on parent engagement, a topic board member and DPS parent Jocelyn Rhynard has focused on during previous meetings. Rhynard is set to facilitate the discussion.
In a statement, DPS said it wants to help families learn how to get involved in their child’s education. The district also wants to establish parent teacher organization in all schools.
Thursday's town hall is the second of four scheduled for this school year. The last two will be held in March and May of 2019.
DPS is under pressure to improve after previous years’ test scores put it at risk of state takeover. If scores don’t rise this year, the district could face takeover as early as next September.
Thursday's meeting is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. at Kiser Pre-K-6 School.
