The Board of Directors for KCSMA invites all parents and staff 
to a Town Hall meeting, Tuesday, September 30, 2014,
at 7:00 p.m. at the school.

 

The goal of this town hall is to promote effective communication among parents, staff, and the KCSMA community.  The following topics are planned:

  • The mission, goals, and plans for future growth of KCSMA
  • The difference between KCSMA and other Cobb County public schools
  • The financial position of the school now and in the future
  • How KCSMA is funded
  • How to best get involved to help KCSMA

There will also be a question and answer session, with at least one Board member remaining until all questions are answered.  To provide a forum in which everyone can be heard, parents are encouraged to drop children off in the gym to watch a movie or play.   ASP staff will be available to supervise them during the town hall.

We look forward to seeing you there,
The KCSMA Board of Directors
