NEW ORLEANS – The Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) is hosting four town hall forums as part of an ongoing commitment to significant public engagement, reps said.

         The town hall forums are part of the OPSB’s public engagement efforts as the state’s Recovery School District (RSD) steps back and OPSB begins oversight of all New Orleans public schools for the first time since Hurricane Katrina. The public is encouraged to attend the town hall forums and share their thoughts and insights.

         The OPSB will share findings from March’s Citywide Survey, discuss plans for the current and upcoming school year, and invite public comment.  The survey closed on May 5, and was open to every New Orleans residents ages 18 and up.
