Town Hall

SARASOTA COUNTY, Aug. 23, 2017 – Sarasota County Schools will host a Digital Town Hall from 7-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 6. The inaugural event will be broadcast live on The Education Channel on Comcast Cable’s channel 20 and Frontier’s channel 33 as well as the district’s website and Facebook page.

During the event, viewers will be able to ask a panel of speakers questions through Facebook and Twitter and receive real-time responses. Questions can be emailed in advance for inclusion in the question bank for the evening event.

The Digital Town Hall’s speaker panel includes Sarasota County Schools Superintendent Todd Bowden, Sarasota County School Board Chairwoman Caroline Zucker, and the district’s three assistant superintendents: Laura Kingsley, Scott Lempe and Mitsi Corcoran. 

“In today’s environment of ever-changing technology and the desire for real-time information on electronic devices, we want to reach families where they are,” said Bowden. “We hope it’s easier for people to watch a town hall on their computers, tablets and smartphones than to have to show up for an event in person. This way, we are able to reach more people in a more convenient way. The goal is to answer as many questions as possible in an hour, and if we have a great turnout, we definitely plan to host more of these throughout the school year.”
