East Baton Rouge Parish residents can provide input about how to recharge and enhance public schools during the Beyond Bricks EBR programs set through Feb. 12 across the parish.
The program is driven by volunteers who are seeking to capture the community’s vision for education through 13 sessions and then determine the changes needed to fulfill the vision of a top-notch public school system, a news release said.
Organizers called the program a one-on-one survey to gather from residents.
“We continue to see input from citizens who want us to hear their voices about public schools,” said Anna Fogle, Beyond Bricks EBR Steering Committee chairwoman.
“We are excited with the response as citizens are voicing their opinions and sharing what they know and what they hope our schools can achieve. We want to thank all of our volunteer leaders, including our local faith leaders and the many facilitator volunteers who have stepped up to assist in the process.”
The program started Jan. 28. Area sessions are set for 6 p.m. Thursday at Baton Rouge High School, 2825 Government St., and at 2 p.m. Sunday at Broadmoor United Methodist Church, 10230 Mollylea Drive.
Another session is set at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Southeast Middle School, 15000 Harrells Ferry Road. For a complete list of sessions, visit beyondbricksebr.org.
