School board seeks community input
Placeholder Image

The Dawson County Board of Education is seeking comments from residents to help develop a new plan for students.

The Dawson County school system is embarking on a strategic planning process that requires input from residents, staff, parents, students and civic leaders. The input will be used to ensure that the resulting plan will reflect the wishes of the district's residents.

"It is critical to have as many voices at the table as possible so that our strategic plan will truly represent all of our district's stakeholders," said Superintendent Damon Gibbs.

There will be two opportunities for the community to provide this input.

The small group discussion regarding issues useful in developing the plan will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 2 at Dawson County Middle School.

For those unable to attend the meeting, an online survey will provide another opportunity to weigh in on this important community development issue. A link to the survey will be posted to the school district's website,, the day after the meeting.

"All of the input will be given to a planning team composed of school staff and community members to assist in their deliberations on crafting a vision, mission, beliefs and strategic goal areas for the district," Gibbs said.

For more information, contact the board at the central office at (706) 265-3246.
