About 4,500 teachers, administrators, community members and others gathered at the Macon Coliseum and convention center Monday morning for the second of the Bibb County school system’s planning sessions.
The attendees at Monday’s session will discuss technology, parent and community involvement, school structure and other topics at morning and afternoon breakout groups.
The school system is in need of major upheaval, rather than small tweaks to the existing system, Superintendent Romain Dallemand said.
“Our students deserve nothing less,” he said.
The ideas generated by the attendees at an initial planning session Sept. 19 were grouped into categories. Dallemand plans to present the final student achievement improvement plan in January, based on the input from Monday’s session, as well as the Sept. 19 session.
The plan is expected to take effect in fall 2012.
