Education commissioner to host virtual town hall meeting


FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt says he will host a virtual town hall meeting this week to gather feedback on how Kentuckians define school success.
The event is set for 6:30 p.m. EDT Tuesday. It will be hosted on the Kentucky Department of Education’s media portal and also will be available on demand.
Pruitt held a series of 11 regional town hall meetings across the state this spring.
The department says nearly 3,000 people attended those regional meetings, with more than 260 people voicing comments and more than 200 submitting comments by email.
Pruitt says the virtual town hall meeting offers another chance for participation by people unable to attend the earlier meetings.
Suggestions at the meetings will be used by officials in developing a new accountability system.
