TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Parents and community members will have a chance to ask questions Thursday evening about a plan that will mean some significant changes for students in the Tuscaloosa City Schools.

The three simultaneous meetings on the Integrated Curriculum, Facilities and Demographics Strategic Plan will happen Thursday, February 18, 6 - 7 p.m. at Bryant, Central and Northridge High Schools. According to the Tuscaloosa City Schools, this will be the same meeting, and people may choose to attend their neighborhood high school or the location that is most convenient for them.

"Thursday night will focus on how we will implement the plan, what does that look like for your child's school," Tuscaloosa City Schools Spokesperson Lesley Bruinton said. "And we invite people to come out, learn how the plan will unfold, what we're expecting to happen as part of that, and ask any questions they may have."

Bruinton said many parents have questions about the strategic plan, specific to their individual child. Another way a parent or community member may ask these questions is through the system's new online communication tool, Let's Talk:
