MPS to hold town hall over intervention, accreditation Thursday night

MPS to hold town hall meeting

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery Public Schools will be holding a special town hall Thursday night that parents may be interested in.

Things that will be discussed include the intervention, system leadership, accreditation and how the district will move forward to success.

MPS Superintendent Dr. Ann Roy Moore will be the keynote speaker. The meeting will be held at the Carver High School auditorium.

“There are several questions we were getting asked over and over,” said Deena Weston, chairwoman for the Montgomery County Council PTA, which is organizing the event. "What is the intervention? Who’s in charge? What’s going on with the intervention? How long will you be under state control? What’s the superintendent’s roll? What is Terry Roller’s role?

“We were getting a lot of those questions,” Weston went on. "We know the accreditation report is bringing an update next month. What does that mean? Could we really lose accreditation? If we lose accreditation what does that mean? Those are all questions we can make up answers to, but to get the superintendent to ask those questions, especially in a public forum, I think just brings a lot more clarity and a lot more truth.”

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and will run until 7 p.m.
