Comprehensive Review 2023:

A Student-Centered Plan for Programs, Boundaries and Facilities is now in the community engagement portion of the process. The engagement effort kicked off Sept. 21-22 with four virtual meetings; one of these was specifically for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council and GenerationNation. Additional meetings were held Sept. 28-29 and focused on specific magnet programs. Over the next two months, the Comprehensive Planning Team will continue to conduct both in-person and online sessions.

There are nine specific topics to be covered, but general feedback is encouraged and all are welcome. The in-person engagement events will provide opportunities to discuss more than one area of interest in breakout settings. The team is also prepared to meet with established community groups, outside of the scheduled events. A survey instrument will be released in mid-October to help ensure that community input is collected.

Please see the following schedule of community engagement events and topics. Zoom links will be provided for each weekly meeting and communicated via social media/Facebook, the CMS website, CMS Magnet pages and www.cmsbondconstruction.com.

Questions and comments from the general public may also be directed to CMSreview23@cms.k12.nc.us at any time.

For questions about the Comprehensive Review or any of the attached information, please contact Dennis K. LaCaria at dennisk.lacaria@cms.k12.nc.us.
