Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Superintendent James Merrill is inviting WCPSS employees, parents, and the public to share their thoughts, concerns, and priorities for WCPSS in a series of community input events called “Superintendent’s Direct Line.”
Merrill has reserved the first 90 minutes of each event specifically for teachers and other WCPSS employees. The 90 minutes is open to parents and the public.
Interested speakers may begin signing up on-site at 4 p.m. each day in the lobby of the school auditorium. Each speaker is allowed three minutes and one appearance at the Superintendent’s Direct Line events.
Speakers are reminded that the Superintendent’s Direct Line is a public event; therefore, personnel issues should not be voiced during this time. Caution should be exercised before sharing private student matters.
Merrill welcomes the opportunity to hear what’s on the minds of Wake’s citizens.
“I encourage everyone who cares about Wake schools to join us. This is a time to listen and let our community do the talking.”
