Throughout the month of October, DeKalb County School District Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson will host a series of roundtable meetings for parents. At these meetings, parents can learn more about the status of current issues faced by the district, as well as hear about new initiatives launching in the 2012-13 school year. School district families also will have the opportunity to ask questions.

“During my 90-day listening and learning tour, many families shared their desire for more open dialogue with the district’s administration,” said Atkinson. “As I wrap up my first full year in the district, I look forward to sharing how far we’ve come and hearing from our families their thoughts on how we can continue work together to help our students. In order to achieve ‘Victory in Every Classroom’ our parents must be our partners and we are committed to improving communication and engagement with our families.”

These are open forums for all DeKalb County parents, and they replace the previous parent advisory committees. Parents are encouraged to submit their questions in advance to

The meetings will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the following dates:
 Oct. 11 — McNair High
 Oct. 15 — Tucker High
 Oct. 23 — Redan High
 Oct. 25 — Lithonia High
 Oct. 29 — Dunwoody High.
