Do you have all kinds of ideas about what Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools needs in a superintendent? Well, you’re in luck!

The search firm McPherson & Jacobson is hosting a series of community forums this week to discuss the superintendent search and selection process.

Each forum will take place in the auditorium of the school from 7-8:30 p.m.

            TONIGHT, September 12​                   West Charlotte High School

            Tuesday, September 13                      South Mecklenburg High School

            Wednesday, September 14                North Mecklenburg High School


Additionally, the community organization Meck Ed will continue to host community conversations about the superintendent search and selection process, as well. While three of these events have already taken place, there are still nine upcoming meetings on the calendar.

Unless otherwise indicated, all of the following events are from 6-6:50 p.m.

            Monday, September 19                      University City Regional Library

            Tuesday, September 20                     Project 658

            Wednesday, September 21                South County Regional Library

            Thursday, September 22                    West Boulevard Library

            Friday, September 23                         Assurance United Methodist Church

            Monday, September 26                      Myers Park United Methodist Church

            Tuesday, September 27                      Main Library @ 9-9:50 a.m.

            Wednesday, September 28                Elevation Church – Blakeney

            Thursday, September 29                    Albemarle Road Recreation Center

Spanish interpreters will be available on-site at each of the Meck Ed events.


It's far easier to have a say early on in the process, so if the leadership of our school district is an issue that you feel strongly about, you need to be at one of these meetings!
