Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Meria Carstarphen will speak at a community meeting next week.

Carstarphen will discuss the district's strategic plan, its work to turn around low-performing schools and plans for the rest of the school year. The event will start at 6 p.m. Jan. 21 meeting in the auditorium at Douglass High School, 225 Hamilton E. Holmes Drive, NW. 

The event is hosted by A.C.T.I.O.N. Network of Atlanta, which seeks to promote public engagement.

Carstarphen's employment contract ends June 30. The school board announced in September that it would begin a search for a successor.
