NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ Rhode Island Education Commissioner Deborah Gist will be holding a community forum in North Kingstown tomorrow night as part of her Commissionerâ€™s 2010-2011 Listening and Learning Tour.
As part of her tour, Gist will visit every school district and hold a community forum where sheâ€™ll discuss the strategic plan thatâ€™s transforming education in the state and take questions from the public.
â€śThe U.S. Department of Education has recognized that our strategic plan is one of the best in the country and has awarded Rhode Island $75 million in Race to the Top funds to implement our plan,â€ť Commissioner Gist said. â€śItâ€™s important that everyone: students, parents, teachers, school leaders and community members, work together to make our schools the best in America. Iâ€™m looking forward to meeting with people from across the state to discuss how we can trans-form education in Rhode Island.â€ť
The public is urged to attend the forum and come prepared with questions.
The forum will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the North Kingstown High School auditorium.
