The ABOE members are already working on the district's annual budget, reviewing and refining school policies, and evaluating who will be the next APS Superintendent. So, please come and welcome them to the Grady Cluster and share the good news about your neighborhood's schools.
Following the Meet-N-Greet, CINS will hold its Annual Town Hall with the APS Superintendent. The community has submitted questions in advance for Superintendent

These questions include the K-12 capacity needs for the cluster, funding, APS equity audit, school safety and curriculum issues. Questions from the audience will be taken as time permits. This portion of the evening will be from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.
The meeting will be held in the Grady High School Auditorium, which is accessible from the 10th Street entrance to the campus. CINS thanks its special guests for the evening along with GHS Principal Dr. Murray and the GHS PTSA who will help CINS host this event for the Grady Cluster community.
