Bibb school Superintendent Romain Dallemand wants to have a big audience when he unveils the system’s strategic plan Feb. 10 at the Macon Coliseum.
Schools will be dismissed early so that teachers, administrators and students can hear details of the plan, aimed at improving student performance through a major overhaul of the system.
All employees must attend the event, which will begin at 1:30 p.m., according to an e-mail Dallemand sent to employees Tuesday. The event is expected to last until 4 p.m. School officials want students from each school zone to be present.
High schools will be dismissed at 11 a.m., middle schools at 11:10 a.m. and elementary students at noon, according to a Wednesday news release.
Thousands of school employees, parents and community leaders met at planning sessions in September and October at the coliseum to help shape the plan.
The school system has also invited state and community leaders and school system partners, along with employees, parents and others that have been part of that process.
“I look forward to working with you as we commit ourselves to students and move our community forward through education,” Dallemand wrote in the employee e-mail.
In the e-mail, Dallemand said school leaders are grateful for input from employees, parents and community leaders.
“As you listen to speakers and hear more about the strategic plan, I am hopeful you will begin to ‘embrace the mission’ of ensuring all students demonstrate strength of character and become college ready,” Dallemand wrote. “It is my goal -- and the goal of our District -- that we become nationally recognized for student achievement and education innovation.”
