OWENSBORO, Ky. (3/11/13) – Daviess County Public Schools Superintendent Owens Saylor has scheduled a series of informal community meetings to give parents and other interested individuals an opportunity to meet with him to share suggestions, questions, ideas and concerns.
“Sit Down with Saylor” meetings are planned once a month in various areas of the Daviess County community. The next meeting is set from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 15, at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, hosted by Samuel and Mary Ann Rafferty, whose son is a student at Burns Middle School. The church is located at 5664 Kentucky 56. Coffee and light refreshments will be served; everyone is welcome.
Samuel Rafferty, a local farmer and owner of Owensboro Antique Mall, said he believes the meetings are “a great opportunity for parents to meet the new superintendent.”
“We have been blessed with an excellent school district,” Rafferty continued. “These meetings give everyone an opportunity to hear Mr. Saylor’s plans for our district, but more importantly, the open dialogue format gives everyone a chance to ask questions and voice concerns.”
The upcoming schedule of sessions includes Jay Dee’s Restaurant at 1420 Breckenridge St. at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 15; and John Kuegel’s dairy barn on Old Lyddane Road at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 11.
“I look forward to meeting families and members of the entire Daviess County community,” Saylor said. “Our community shares the DCPS district’s great expectation in providing a world-class education for our children. I welcome open and honest dialogue, suggestions, questions or concerns anyone might have.”
The goal of “Sit Down with Saylor” meetings is to make the superintendent as accessible as possible at locations and times convenient to families in our community. The superintendent also welcomes input by calling his office at 270-852-7000 or by email,
