Superintendent Community Conversations
Learning happens best in community and this is a great community." - Dr. Michelle C. Reid
Dr. Michelle Reid is hosting Community Conversations across the division to get to know our communities. Events will be held at the high school in each pyramid through November, unless otherwise noted below. Each Community Conversation will be held in person, allowing Dr. Reid an opportunity to better connect with participants. If you are unable to attend your pyramid's event, please consider attending another one. Schools will share registration information with families and employees. We look forward to seeing you soon!
If you would like to share additional comments, please email Dr. Reid at [email protected].
All events will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Interpretation services (as available), child care, and light refreshments will be provided.

Many factors were considered when scheduling the Community Conversations. Our focus was on holding events from August 23-October 31, allowing the superintendent to meet with families and employees as soon as possible in the new school year. Dates in November were added to ensure all pyramids were represented. Working with the superintendent's availability, we also weighed considerations impacting the availability of a high school's auditorium or cafeteria including:
- Back to school events.
- Other major events including fall sports and fine arts.
- Events booked by community organizations.
Our goal was to accommodate pyramids with Title 1 schools early in the schedule, where possible. Days of the week also played a role in scheduling the events. For example, the School Board holds their regular meetings every other Thursday evening, and we realize that Fridays evenings are the start of the weekend.
If you are unable to attend your pyramid's meeting date, we encourage you to attend another pyramid's event at your convenience. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
