WOODBURY, TN – The Cannon County Board of Education will be conducting a “Restructuring Roundtable” Discussion Forum on Thursday, August 26, 2021 – 6:30 PM at Cannon County High School Cafeteria, 1 Lion Drive, Woodbury, TN 37190. This Forum’s purpose is to gather input from various stakeholders in the Cannon County Community in regard to the possible restructuring of Cannon County Schools as a GOAL of the Cannon County Schools Strategic Plan 2021-2022.
The Cannon County Board of Education has been working on the Cannon County Schools Strategic Plan since September 2020 with Goal #4 stating, “Develop a long-range facilities plan that provides opportunities and resources for all Students, Faculties, and Staffs.” The Forum will gather input from various stakeholders i.e. Parents/Guardians, Teachers, Elected Officials, Business Leaders, Community Members, and local Citizens regarding multiple areas of topics such as facilities, courses offered, additions to curriculum, extra-curricular activities, test scores, and other related topics. People have been invited that have different and varied opinions in regard to the possibility of the restructuring and related topics of Cannon County Schools in the future.
Cannon County Board of Education Chairman, Mrs. Aletha Thomas stated, “This Forum is not a night for debate and argument, but to brainstorm about the future for the students of Cannon County. The Forum will have invited participants interact with a table leader with various topics for 10-11 minutes each. The Facilitator for the Forum will be the ‘Timekeeper’ and the participants will move forward to another topic at the appropriate time. At the conclusion of the Forum, summaries will be given and notes from each table presented to the Board. This evening will be about productivity and progress toward development and implementation of a long-term Strategic Plan and other related topics which will provide opportunities and resources for all students in our county.”
The venue will be in the Cannon County High School Cafeteria due to a scheduling conflict where the CCHS Gymnasium is being utilized for a Volleyball Game the same night. The Cannon County Board of Education desires the submission of questions that could be used at the Forum.
