St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) Chair Bev Slough will host a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, February 24 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Creekside High School, 100 Knights Lane, St. Johns. This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
Technology, growth, capital funding and advocacy will be the focus of this meeting and each topic will be covered by Slough or SJCSD administrators. Superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner will provide remarks at the start of the meeting. There will also be time allotted for questions and comments from attendees.
“Our school district has realized a 5 percent increase in students this year alone,” said Slough. “We continue to grow at a rapid pace and must figure out ways to fund new schools to accommodate our children. This can only be done by working together as a community, and determining ways that each one of us can help.”
The northwest portion of St. Johns County is one of the fastest growing areas in the region. Slough periodically holds Town Hall meetings to ensure that parents and children are informed with correct and accurate information.
