He said at the various school meetings, six rooms will be set up so people can choose three of the rooms to go in for 20-25 minutes to discuss these topics.

School staff meetings began at Polk Central Elementary School Feb. 13 and will wrap up by Feb. 27 at Polk County High School.
The meetings will start out with an introduction and then be followed by the three individual breakout sessions.
“The biggest challenge for us is to get people to talk about the big picture and not the smaller things that affect their daily lives now,” Miller said. “We’ve got to discuss where we want to be down the road.”
Polk Schools also plans to get student feedback through a student roundtable with middle and high school students.
Community meetings will follow on the following schedule:
March 5: Polk County Early College
March 12: Sunny View Elementary School
March 19: Polk Central Elementary School
March 26: Polk County High School
April 2: Tryon Elementary School
