BOE to meet with council

SUWANEE — The Gwinnett County Board of Education will meet with the Teachers’ Advisory Council during its work session Thursday.

During the annual meeting, the Teachers’ Advisory Council representatives meet with their school board representative to share school concerns and ask questions.

Gwinnett County Board of Education member Louise Radloff said the countywide meeting is helpful because it allows board members to learn what common priorities exist among the different clusters, especially as it relates to the budget and the district’s vision and mission.

• What: Gwinnett County Board of Education meeting

• When: 2 p.m. work session, 6:30 p.m. open forum, 7 p.m. business meeting

• Where: Instructional Support Center, 437 Old Peachtree Road N.W., Suwanee

“To me, it’s one of the better meetings of the year, because it is teachers, and I get to have the opportunity to hear what they’re thinking,” Radloff said.

The board’s work session is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Board members will meet with Teachers’ Advisory Council members from their districts from 3 to 3:45 p.m. At 3:50 p.m., everyone will gather in the board room, and the board members will report on their conversations.

The work session precedes the 7 p.m. business meeting, which will take place in the board room of the Instructional Support Center.

Also, an open forum will take place at 6:30 p.m. for anyone who wishes to address the board.
