Residents have two more opportunities to have input on the next superintendent of Grand Rapids Public Schools (GRPS). Town hall meetings started on Monday, Nov. 26 and will be held through Monday, Dec. 3. These meetings are for people to share their thoughts on the characteristics they’d like to see in the next GRPS Superintendent to succeed Teresa Weatherall Neal, who will retire at the end of June 2019.

The next two meetings are scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Thursday, Nov. 29 at Gerald R. Ford Academic Center, 851 Madison Ave SE
  • Monday, Dec. 3 at City High Middle (1720 Plainfield Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505)

People unable to attend or who would like to contribute additional thoughts are invited to provide their input online. Continue reading Town halls give residents chance to weigh in on next superintendent
