Education Commissioner John B. King Jr. will be in Jamestown on Wednesday to hear from parents and educators.
Details of the community forum were finally posted to the state Department of Education's website on Monday.
If you plan to go, the forum will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Jamestown High School, 350 East 2nd St., Jamestown.
According to Erie 2 Chautauqua Cattaraugus Board of Cooperative Educational Services, the auditorium at Jamestown High School can accommodate up to 1,200 attendees. The forum is open to the public, and audience members who would like to speak will be able to sign up at the event.
People who are not able to speak due to time constraints may submit written comments to the commissioner, according to an advisory sent out by Erie 2 BOCES. The event will be moderated by Marcia Merrins of the League of Women Voters of Chautauqua County.
It will be co-hosted by Jamestown Public Schools and Jamestown Community College. The event is part of a series of public forums King has held across the state to discuss new Common Core Curriculum Standards and other education reform initiatives.
State education officials have said they are planning another forum in Erie County before the end of the year, but have not released any details about that event.
