CHARLES CITY–The Charles City Board of Education will discuss received proposals from public relations firms at a special meeting today. The board will discuss the possibly of hiring or requesting an interview from a firm. The hiring of a public relations firm was discussed earlier this month at the board’s regular meeting. Superintendent Dr. Dan Cox says hiring a Public Relations firm sooner rather than later is an important priority for the Board of Education. Cox says particular social media groups are spreading incorrect information regarding the proposed facility plans for the district.
At the regular meeting, board members agreed that a social media presence as well as printed materials outlining proposed plans would be beneficial.
Other items on the agenda include facility plan discussions, Iowa Assessments summary, discussion renaming the middle school repurposing committee, information regarding a transitional kindergarten class, site visit discussion, and readings of policies.
