Martinsville City Public Schools Superintendent Zeb Talley, Assistant Superintendent Angilee Downing, Martinsville High School Principal Aji Dixon, and Martinsville Middle School Principal Cynthia Tarpley presented “Transforming a High Poverty School Division: Our Students Don’t Have Time to Wait,” by webinar April 21.
School divisions across had the option to attend the session.
“I am extremely pleased that the MCPS division has been selected for this presentation,” Talley said. “Our staff works very hard to remove barriers from student learning. Students, teachers, and the supporters along with staff are doing an excellent job educating our students while showing our community that they can achieve the impossible.”
The presentation was originally given at the Virginia School Board Association conference in November. It was presented in Martinsville on Jan. 23 at Martinsville High School.
