At least four times each year, I engage with local reporters from print, broadcast and even our high schools journalists to talk about what’s happening in Atlanta Public Schools. I convened the latest Superintendent Quarterly Media Roundtable on Wednesday afternoon at the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Learning and Leadership.
As part of the formal agenda, we talked about our work on the next five-year Strategic Plan; the district’s work on a Facilities Master Plan; the inaugural Great Atlanta Bash football extravaganza at Georgia State’s football stadium on Saturday, Sept. 21; the APyeS awards, which will be presented on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Delta Flight Museum; and the upcoming “Epic of APS” State of the District, on Thursday, Nov. 7, at a newly renovated Harper-Archer Elementary School.
The discussion moved to other topics, including media questions about the superintendent contract extension.
