Leaders are asking residents to make their voices heard this week at a trio of community input sessions to guide the goals and financial priorities of Tuscaloosa City Schools.

School administrators are working to shape both their short-term and long-term vision. Negotiations are underway now over TCS's budget for this fiscal year, and Superintendent Mike Daria and other leaders are interested in learning what residents believe the system should prioritize going forward - and how much they're willing to pay to do so.

To learn more, the school system will host three different community input sessions, starting tonight - Monday, September 11th - at Central High School at 6 p.m.

A second session will follow on Wednesday evening at Northridge High School, and Thursday and Paul W. Bryant High School. All three events will be held in the schools' auditoriums.

"These sessions are crucial to the Tuscaloosa City Schools as the input given will let us know what the communities sees as priorities for the future of our school system," Daria said. "We invite you to come help shape the future of the Tuscaloosa City Schools."

Anyone who lives in Tuscaloosa is invited to attend, regardless of whether they have a child in a TCS school. Anyone from any part of the city can attend the meeting of their choice and convenience.


To help shape Tuscaloosa City Schools and make your voice heard, plan to attend one of these listening sessions:

Monday, Sept. 11 at 6 p.m., Central High School Auditorium

Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m., Northridge High School Auditorium

Thursday, Sept. 14 at 6 p.m., Paul W. Bryant High School Auditorium
