Superintendent holds public forums


School Superintendent Kathleen A. Smith will hold a series of public forums to gather input and perspective on the Brockton public schools. The forums are intended to help Smith assemble an entry plan and five-year strategy plan for the 17,300-student district. “It is very important that all voices are heard as we chart our direction for the next several years,’’ Smith said.
