Superintendent’s Whale Branch town hall
meeting will be first in spring semester

BEAUFORT – The first of six spring town hall meetings for parents and community members to meet with Superintendent Jeff Moss will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, at Whale Branch Early College High School.

Moss holds informal town hall meetings twice each year with parents and citizens in each of the district’s five “clusters” of schools.

“We welcome and encourage feedback from parents and community members, and our twice-yearly town hall meetings in each cluster provide productive forums for questions, discussions and sharing information,” Moss said.  “I always look forward to them.”

This spring’s scheduled meetings are:

  • Jan. 9, 6 p.m., Whale Branch Early College High School
  • Jan. 23, 6 p.m., May River High School
  • Feb. 13, 6 p.m., Battery Creek High School (to include Islands Academy)
  • Feb. 27, 6 p.m., Bluffton Middle School (Spanish-language meeting)
  • March 27, 6 p.m., Hilton Head Island High School
  • April 16, 6 p.m., Beaufort High School

Town hall meetings in the Bluffton cluster alternate between Bluffton and May River high schools, and the fall meeting was held at Bluffton High.

For Spanish-speaking parents, simultaneous translation devices will be available at all five spring town hall meetings.  In addition, a sixth town hall meeting devoted specifically to questions and concerns of Spanish-speaking parents will be held at Bluffton Middle School on Feb. 27 at 6 p.m.
