NBR Initiative to host Aug. 27 discussion with Superintendent Drake
Members of the community‐led initiative Our Schools…Our Excellence (OSOE) are hosting an open forum with East Baton Rouge Parish School System Superintendent Warren Drake, Thursday, August 27, 6pm, at Star Hill Church, 1400 N. Foster Dr.
An Evening with Superintendent Drake is purposed to connect the North Baton Rouge community with the new parish leader as he shares his plan for schools in North Baton Rouge.
“I believe it is critical that we engage our stakeholders from every area of the parish in a discussion about the future of East Baton Rouge Parish schools. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with members of the North Baton Rouge community to address issues of importance to them,” said Drake.
Since taking over as superintendent, Drake has shared what he believes is required to improve the education ecosystem in the parish. OSOE leaders said Drake’s plan “greatly aligns with OSOE’s Community Compact. Thus, our goal is clear: to allow Superintendent Drake to explain his vision to an audience that needs it most, and to challenge the community to work with our new leader to see it come to pass.”
The meeting is free and open to the public but registration at https://eveningwithdrake.eventbrite.com is encouraged.
