City School Superintendent Seeks Help from Community
Tonight, administrators will begin a series of 10 community meetings throughout the city. They want the public's input on a plan to dig the district out of trouble and regain accreditation. Currently, St. Louis schools are provisionally accredited. The School Board and Superintendent Creg Williams hope to fix years of poor test scores, high dropout rates and frequent campus fights. Williams came to St. Louis from Philadelphia schools about six months ago. He hopes to develop a plan that will guide the district for the next six years. Williams wants residents, parents, teachers, college leaders and business leaders to attend the meetings.
