Superintendent Patrick D. Jenkins will be conducting a listening tour of St. Landry Parish.

As part of an ongoing effort to engage all stakeholders, Jenkins is hosting morning “Coffee and Conversation” talks and evening “Town Hall” meetings that begin next week.

Each chat will be held in a local restaurant, church, or school. The morning “Coffee and Conversation” will be held from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. The evening “Town Hall” will be from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

During these events, Jenkins says he wants to reflect and share thoughts on the following five questions about the school district:

· What are our strengths?
· What are our challenges?

· What is possible?
