2 October public education meetings deal with performance of schools
The Oct. 26 NAPPS meeting will focus on performance and demographic data for the cluster relating to the latest updates in terms of testing data, demographics, and trends.
Plan to bring laptops, phones, or tablets as a portion of the meeting will involve a more interactive format. APS maintains a Data Blog that contains a great deal of information, so check it out to learn as much as you can about the state of the North Atlanta cluster.
The meeting will be at 12 noon on the Morris Brandon Primary Campus, 2845 Margaret Mitchell Drive. The speaker will be John Keltz, director of Research and Evaluation, Atlanta Public Schools
