Advisory Commission on Student Success Scheduled to Meet

GREENSVILLE/EMPORIA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES

LOCAL BOARD MEETING

The Greensville/Emporia Department of Social Services Administrative Board will meet on Thursday, October 18, 2017, at 3:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Greensville/Emporia Department of Social Services located at 1748 East Atlantic Street.  The public is welcome to attend.

In May 2017, the Greensville County School Board established a 35-member advisory commission to engage members of the community in dialog about needed school improvements.

During the three meetings held last spring, members of the Advisory Commission on Student Success were committed to fulfilling the goals of understanding the needs, engaging in meaningful dialog, and making recommendations for improvement in key areas. Four primary recommendations came forth from the Commission’s work last spring.

The Commission recommended that the school division

  • Conduct a comprehensive strategic planning process;
  • Continue work in the areas of safety, security, supervision, and student discipline;
  • Implement systemic literacy instructional services that move student achievement forward; and
  • Strengthen the system for early academic intervention to address needs of students who do not master required grade level skills.

The Commission’s first meeting of the year is scheduled for 5:30 PM on Thursday, November 9th, in the Library/Media Center at Greensville County High School. The purpose of this meeting is to receive progress updates and discuss next steps.

Meetings of the Advisory Commission on Student Success are open for the public to attend.
