Mo Green visits the GRRA

Thanks to Guilford County Schools superintendent Maurice "Mo" Green for coming out to speak at our luncheon on April 6. In case you missed it, he outlined several areas where the schools had made good or excellent progress (ABC Honor designations, EOG grades in math, reading and science), and some where much work remained (e.g. the number of schools designated as "low-performing" which currently stands at 10).

He brought along excerpts from the school's strategic plan, which you can view in full here.

One topic the superintendent wasn't able to talk about in detail was the budget for the coming school year, which he planned to unveil to the school board later that day. He did warn of further belt tightening, and news reports from the meeting outline exactly what that might mean.
