First of Three Engagement Forums on Intervention Held in Montgomery

Apr 18, 2017

The first of three engagement forums was held last night for parents and teachers to ask questions regarding the state intervention of Montgomery Public Schools. State Department of Education officials were on hand to detail how the intervention will work, including State Schools Superintendent Michael Sentance. Sentance says it will take several years to return the system to a desired level of academic performance. In all, 27 schools within the system are being taken over by the state, while the rest remain under the supervision of the Montgomery Public School System. Two more engagement forums are scheduled : April 25 at Sidney Lanier High School and April 27 at Park Crossing High School.
