The fifth town hall meeting for parents and community members to meet with Superintendent Jeffrey Moss will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4 in Battery Creek High School’s auditorium. Moss plans to hold town hall meetings twice yearly at each of the county’s five high schools for residents living in those areas. “These meetings will be an opportunity for parents and community members to get to know me a little better, and also for me to listen and learn,” said Moss, who took over as superintendent in July. “I’m hoping to get a lot of useful feedback about what parents and community members in all areas of the county perceive to be our most important challenges.”
