Davenport announced the new initiative during Monday night's board meeting. He said what they're trying to do is make sure they are listening to parents and finding immediate solutions to their concerns.

Dr. Marcus Davenport announced the new initiative during Monday night's board meeting.

"We understand that a board meeting does not provide the appropriate platform for parents to express themselves," Davenport said. "So, we're going to have these open sessions where there's dialogue with the superintendent. And we will find solutions based on the dialogue that we have with our community and with our parents."

The meetings will have 5 to 25 people in them and will start on July 23.

The plan is to have one meeting each week until the beginning of the school year.
