Join Dr. Brumley’s Community Meetings in Harvey February 12 and 13

Jefferson Parish Public School System Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley will continue his conversations with educators and the community by hosting a morning coffee chat February 12 and an evening town hall February 13 in Harvey.

The coffee chat will be from 8 to 9 a.m. at Chick-fil-a at 1128 Manhattan Blvd. The town hall will be the following day from 5 to 6 p.m. at St. Ville Elementary at 1121 Pailet Street in Harvey. The coffee chat and town hall are on different days due to the Jefferson Parish School Board meeting February 12. These community meetings are part of nine Discovery Days Dr. Brumley is hosting throughout this school year.

The coffee chats and town halls bookend days Dr. Brumley will spend at a different school getting to know students, educators, and families. Schools were drawn at random by each board member. Each Discovery Day begins with coffee, followed by a learning-walk around the school, a meeting with that school’s principal, a meeting with faculty after school, and a town hall meeting that evening.

Community members are invited to the coffee chats and town halls to share their thoughts on five questions:

1. What are our strengths?
2. What are our challenges?
3. What should we start doing?
4. What should we stop doing?
5. What is possible?

Dr. Brumley originally hosted a Discovery Day in all nine JPPSS districts as part of his 100-day entry plan.
