Update: A new date for the Listen & Learn meeting outlined below will be announced at a later date.
HISD Board of Education Trustee Anna Eastman will host a community town hall meeting for the north region schools with Superintendent Richard Carranza at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at Northside High School.
The meeting, part of the continuing “Listen & Learn Tour” will be a way to solicit input from stakeholders about the district’s future and learn about key issues across HISD.
Carranza and the Board of Education wrapped up the first series of meetings in October with the promise of continuing conversations with the many communities that make up the district.
Some of the topics of discussion during the tour have included: equity and making sure every students have the opportunities available to them to succeed, serving the whole child with extracurricular activities and engaging outside entities to work with HISD to provide support services for students and families, and the issue of recapture and how the school funding structure is affecting the district.
