The School District of University City is launching a series of community engagement opportunities, so current and prospective families, community members and staff can learn more about the great things happening in its schools.
The community is invited to attend one of the “Conversations with the Superintendent” addresses scheduled for 7:30 a.m., 4 and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10 in the boardroom of the Ronald E. McNair Administration Building, located at 8136 Groby Road.
Superintendent Joylynn Pruitt will share the status of Prop U. construction projects, academic reform efforts, the District's full accreditation, as well as open up the lines of communication for an informal question-and-answer session.
Later in the month, the District will host its second annual “See Our Schools, See Our Pride week” Oct. 22-26. The “districtwide open house” provides the community with an opportunity to see building improvements, learn more about each school community and hear about the academic work within each building.
Community members are invited to visit one school or all schools in the District throughout the week, either through evening events on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday or during-the- day visits on Thursday and Friday.
