Daviess County School District Superintendent Plans Informal Community Meetings

sit down 300OWENSBORO, 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.

Future meetings are planned at the Daviess County Public Library, other local restaurants and homes of DCPS families. The meeting times will also vary, giving people the opportunity to attend morning, noontime or evening events. A meeting schedule is posted on the district website at www.dcps.org and will be updated as future events are added, or individuals may contact the DCPS Central Office at 270-852-7000 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I welcome open and honest dialogue, suggestions, questions or concerns anyone might have.”
