Coffee with the SLSD Superintendent

SALINEVILLE — Residents within the Southern Local School District are invited this Friday morning for the kickoff of a monthly gathering with Superintendent Tom Cunningham.

Coffee with the Superintendent will be held the second Friday of each month starting Sept. 13 from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and the first event will take place in the Southern Local Elementary cafeteria. Attendants can enjoy free coffee and pastries and Cunningham said the purpose was to discuss school-related issues in a relaxed atmosphere.

“It will be a casual chat and all of the community is invited,” he said. “If people have questions and concerns, we can discuss it there, I hope it becomes a tradition.”

He will be joined by district Treasurer Greg Sabbato and wanted to have administrators and other school representatives at future sessions. Cunningham said further events would be conducted throughout the community to accommodate people without transportation.

“People will have more contact with us,” he added. “It was something I thought about last year. I never had time to plan it out but it will help me meet more community members. I think we need to hear from the district residents and share things they may not be aware that we’re doing here.”
