hcsboard 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (1/11/14) — Hopkins County Schools Superintendent Linda Zellich is taking the show on the road — the Board of Education will be available to meet with parents, students and anyone in the public that has questions, concerns or opinions to share during town-hall type meetings scheduled around the county over the next few months.

The first of the meetings will be from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13 at South Hopkins Middle School.

“A long time ago, we had traveling board meetings,” said Zellich. “It was quite a bit of trouble to move everything — the media, microphones — and we weren't producing results in public interest.”

While moving the actual board meetings to various locations isn't feasible, taking the board to areas around the county is. Although they won't be holding actual board meetings, the board will be available to the public.

“It will be a very informal setting,” said Zellich. “It won't be set up like a meeting with everyone sitting down. We'll be available to address talk one-on-one with parents or older people from the community, who just want to ask questions about how we do things.”

Zellich said providing time to sit down and have a conversation was the inspiration for the meetings. Prior to the meetings, board members will be touring the schools to making personal visits.

Other meetings will be from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10 at James Madison Middle School and West Hopkins School from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 14.

The board also is planning school visits throughout the remainder of the school year.
