Superintendent Griff Mills will hold his first “Coffee with the Superintendent” on Friday, Feb. 24, at Randall Elementary at 9 a.m.
“Coffee with the Superintendent is a way for parents of our students to join me for an informal discussion where they can share things that we are doing well, and where they can let me know areas we can improve,” says Supt. Mills. “We really want this to be an event where we open it up to dialogue that will help move us forward as a district.”
Although the first Coffee with the Superintendent will be held at Randall Elementary School, the event is open to all parents of Taylor School District students, regardless of the school they attend. Each month, Supt. Mills will invite parents to a different school to give them a chance to meet and talk with him.
“We want to open this up to everyone,” he says. “One of the goals I’ve set for myself this year is to be more visible inside of our school buildings. This is just another way to do that while also giving our parents an opportunity to talk with me about some of the challenges or successes they’ve experienced so far this year.”
Taylor School District, along with the entire administration team, is excited for Coffee with the Superintendent as it gives us the chance to gather feedback that we may not normally receive.
“We have done some things to collect feedback from our families, including an engagement survey and adding a feedback form on our website,” says Supt. Mills. “Our parents’ feedback is invaluable as we discuss plans for the future, so having different channels for them to provide that is something that I think is very important”
We’re looking forward to seeing you at this month’s Coffee with the Superintendent on Feb. 24.
