As part of its ongoing community out-reach effort, the South Dearborn Community School Community School Corporation will not be holding its next few board meetings at its normal location on the school’s main campus.
Superintendent Dr. John Mehrle said he and the school board are working toward increasing channels of communication with the greater South Dearborn School Community and building school-community partnerships.
Rotating the location of the next few school board meetings are part of this effort. South Dearborn’s board meetings are generally held the first Monday of each month, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Due to Labor Day week, the September meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 10, in Dillsboro.
The Monday, Oct. 1, meeting will take place at Moores Hill with the Monday, Nov. 5, meeting at Manchester.
Mehrle envisions even having some of the meetings in city or town buildings from time-to-time for community input, he said.
Mehrle does a monthly podcast that is posted on the school’s website.
He is also working with the school’s web site vendor to enhance the school’s web site, provide more information, and make it more userfriendly to the public.
“We’ll be placing ‘customer satisfaction; surveys on site geared to obtaining community/parent feedback that will be used in discussing school programming and school improvement efforts. Board minutes are now being placed on the website as well,” said Mehrle.
Mehrle and the school board have scheduled a retreat at the end of September to develop broad-based school corporation goals.
Enhancing school-community partnerships and communication will certainly be part of the discussion.
