Bibb Superintendent Dan Sims encourages parents to get involved

It involves six meetings in six schools to allow parents to listen, offer feedback and become more involved in their child’s learning and beyond.

MACON, Ga. — After 90 days on the job, Bibb County School District Superintendent Dan Sims is still working through his entry plan. To do this, he wants to meet parents in what could become one of his best collaborations to date.

A superintendent plays a huge role in shaping your child’s education. That’s why Bibb County Superintendent Dan Sims is holding engagement sessions in hopes of involving parents more.

Sims has served as superintendent of the Bibb County School District for just over three months.

“I think people hear me, they know I hear them, and there’s a relationship that develops, not just with the schools, but with the students, the staff, the parents,” Sims said.

To keep building, Sims says he got the idea from community engagement.

It involves six meetings in six schools to allow parents to listen, offer feedback and become more involved in their child’s learning and beyond.

“The big idea behind the six stops is to share what’s available to students as we think about each of them’s ultimate goal of earning a college degree or being ready for a career,” a- he continued.

Sims says there’s also an opportunity to rebuild relationships that the COVID-19 pandemic may have strained, helping Bibb County and surrounding areas with the workforce and community.

“While we are not out of COVID, we are in a better space to re-engage with partners, to re-engage with organizations, to re-engage with the workforce, colleges and universities, and in doing so we find great ground that we are able to cover,” explained the superintendent.

He believes with the help of parents; the neighborhood can thrive.

“We’re putting a framework in place so everyone can be authentically involved in the life of this school district and I feel like that’s what we need in 2022 and beyond,” he said. -he declares.

Parents can attend one of six meetings. These begin Monday, November 28, each at 6 p.m. All sessions are open to all parents.

The Sims has an “In the Loop with the Sup” podcast that is also geared towards parents.
