4,000 Gather to Plan Future of Bibb Public Schools

Thousands of people crowded the Macon Centreplex Monday to brainstorm what the Bibb County school system should look like in 5 years.

The meeting was the start of Superintendent Romain Dallemand's strategic planning process.

About 4,000 educators, public officials, and other community members drew up ideas of how to boost student achievement.

For example one group explored matching teaching styles to student's learning styles instead of the one-size-fits-all teaching model used now.

Another discussed parental involvement and more technology in the teaching process.

Mayor Robert Reichert attended and participated in the seven-hour-long meeting.

"I am in one of the groups right here and I plan on participating for most of the day to at least give my input and to learn and hear from others," he said.

All the ideas will be collected into a digital form to create the final strategic plan in January.
