Listen and Learn
As a means to create an open and honest dialogue with district employees, parents, and key community groups, Dr. Cook hosts a series of Listen and Learn sessions throughout the year.
Every month, a group of teachers representing all schools attend an interactive two-hour session in which questions and concerned are shared directly with district leaders who are able to provide responses. Following each monthly, a publication is shared electronically with all 2,400 employees which details the questions and answers from each Teacher Listen and Learn.
Additionally, Dr. Cook meets with Realtors, faith community leaders, parents and community through additional focused opportunities to learn from each group.
Dr. Cook met with area Realtors on September 27, 2018, faith community leaders on December 11, 2018, and Pre-School Providers/Partners on April 11, 2019. Additional sessions are planned for Spring 2019.
