At the first day of the inaugural 1Dawson Learning Academy, participants got an in-depth look at the operational side of the school system as topics of employment, energy efficiency, nutrition, safety and finance were discussed during the informal meeting. “Our goal today and next week is to really provide you with operational information about the school system but more importantly hopefully prompt some questions about how we operate,” said Superintendent Damon Gibbs. Those gathered at the Professional Development Center Sept. 11 learned the behind the scenes information from the human resources, finance, facilities and maintenance, transportation, operations and nutrition departments. Due to the nature of human resources and finance, Chief Human Resource Officer Lisa Perry explained that the two departments work closely together.
