FRANKFORT (AP) — Kentucky Education Commissioner Jason E. Glass is planning a virtual listening tour across the state this spring, officials said.
The tour is scheduled to kick off on April 6 in Louisville and wind down on May 6 in Ashland, a statement from the Kentucky Department of Education said. Glass will be gathering input from the public on long-term aspirations for the state's education system, the statement said.
A total of nine sessions, about 90 minutes each, will be held over the monthlong period. Other sessions are planned in Murray, Bowling Green, Richmond, Lexington, Cold Springs, Shelbyville and Hazard.
“I hope to see many stakeholders engaged in these virtual meetings and I look forward to the Thrich dialogue that will inform our continuous improvement efforts,” Glass said.
A list of dates and times and a link to pre-register for any session is on the Education Department's website.
