Kindergarten and preschool programs in the Lakota schools are the focus of today’s public community conversation meeting.
It is part of an ongoing series designed to bring school personnel and the public together to talk about specific issues or anything regarding the schools.
Today’s 7 p.m., session, will be held in West Chester Rooms 1 and 2 at the Cincinnati Marriott North, located at the corner of Union Centre Boulevard and Muhlhauser Road in West Chester Township.
The gathering will be hosted by the principals at Lakota’s four early childhood schools – Creekside, Liberty, Shawnee, and Wyandot.
The discussions began a year ago. Forty-two were held at residents homes or gathering sports during the last school year. The goal is to do just as many this year, said Randy Oppenheimer, district spokesman.
“They’re just for information gathering to find out the pulse of the community on schools and education,’’ Oppenheimer said.
Besides two or three board members the superintendent and some administrators attend the sessions.
No action is taken or official school business conducted at any of the sessions.
They are designed for the community talk about any education concerns or experiences and to answer questions, Oppenheimer said.
Anyone wishing to host such a session, is asked to contact Oppenheimer, at 513-874-5505.
