St. Helena Island parents, teachers and community leaders got the chance to meet the new Beaufort County School Superintendent Frank Rodriguez this past Thursday at St. Helena Elementary School.
The “meet-n-greet” meeting was part of Rodriguez’s “Listening and Learning Tour.”
According to a press release, Rodriguez hopes to talk with parents, teachers and other school administrators about what’s working well and what needs attention at schools all through out the district.
“These are opportunities for me to directly engage with parents and community members and listen to them and learn what’s on their minds,” Rodriguez said.
The next meeting in Northern Beaufort County is scheduled for Sept. 24, at Whale Branch Early College High School, followed by a Sept. 26 meeting at Beaufort High School. Both meetings will begin at 6 p.m.
