DPS plans celebration to unveil strategic plan... but is it invitation only?
Update: We heard back late Thursday from spokeswoman Tahira Stalberte, after the posting of this story, who said that invitations were in fact mailed and emailed to students, parents, staff, business leaders, elected officials, and certain others in the community (members of the media will receive a "save-the-date" invitation next week). "While we would have loved to invite the entire community, the venue (NC Biotechnology Center) does not lend itself to that," Stalberte added. Instead, there will be web-streaming of the superintendent's address at the event, for those who cannot attend. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Now that the new year has arrived, DPS is getting ready to launch its much-awaited strategic plan. And to do so, the district will be holding an invitation-only celebration on January 26, complete with interactive exhibits highlighting each of the six Strategic Plan Focus Areas, performances by DPS students, and an address by Superintendent Becoats. The district is even providing shuttle bus service from the Fuller Building to the event at the NC Biotechnology Center. Didn't get an invitation? Don't feel left out; it's not clear many people did, given the lack of attention in the media to this upcoming shindig. But invitations did go out, via email, to what's presumably a select group, along with this rather interesting request in the transmittal email: "This is your personal invitation. Please refrain from forwarding it to others." The email forwards to a new web address, http://www.dpsnc.net/rsvp, that doesn't appear in the DPS web site's search...
