Tuscaloosa City Schools hosts second community forum
By WVUA 23 News Student Reporter Gracie Johnson
TUSCALOOSA – Tuscaloosa City Schools Board invited members of the community and parents of students to come to Northridge High School on Thursday, Nov. 3 to discuss culture and climate in the school system.
The event was hosted for the second time with the intent to allow more community members to join in on the conversations.
“Our purpose is to insure all students are positively connected to their schools. They feel safe in their schools and they’re engaged, so that they can learn at high levels,” said TCS Superintendent Mike Daria. “And for us we want to keep hearing from our parents, from our students, and our teachers on how we can do that so that all students can be highly successful.”
At Thursday’s event, attendees gathered in the cafeteria before being split off into small groups to discuss topics more thoroughly. Members of the media were not allowed to attend the small group meetings due to classroom confidentiality rules.
This was the second time TCS administration hosted this type of event, and they plan to host two more at Paul Bryant and Central high schools.
