At a school board meeting this week, members of Atlanta Thrive called on the board to complete a strategic plan “with clear measurements.”
The group organized the upcoming summit to give another chance to provide input on that plan, which will begin next year. The district has already held its own series of community meetings regarding the development of the strategic plan.
The Denver-based consultant who helped the district develop its "Excellent Schools" plan was paid for by the nonprofit organization RedefinED Atlanta. The organization agreed to pay $235,000 for the consulting services and other costs. RedefinED, according to its website, also provides support to Atlanta Thrive.
