The Council of Intown Neighborhoods and Schools (CINS) will host a Meet-N-Greet for the newly elected Atlanta Board of Education (ABOE) members on Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. at Grady High School in Midtown. 

All nine members have confirmed their attendance at the school located at 929 Charles Allen Drive.

The nine newly elected board members are District 1 Leslie Grant, District 2 Byron Amos, District 3 Matt Westmoreland, District 4 & Board Vice Chair Nancy Meister, District 5 Steven Lee, District 6 Eshe Collins, Seat 7 at Large & Board Chair Courtney English, Seat 8 at Large Cynthia Briscoe-Brown, and Seat 9 at Large Jason Esteves. 

The ABOE members are already working on the district's annual budget, reviewing and refining school policies, and evaluating who will be the next APS Superintendent. So, please come and welcome them to the Grady Cluster and share the good news about your neighborhood's schools.

Following the Meet-N-Greet, CINS will hold its Annual Town Hall with the APS Superintendent. The community has submitted questions in advance for Superintendent Erroll B. Davis, Jr.

These questions include the K-12 capacity needs for the cluster, funding, APS equity audit, school safety and curriculum issues. Questions from the audience will be taken as time permits. This portion of the evening will be from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.

The meeting will be held in the Grady High School Auditorium, which is accessible from the 10th Street entrance to the campus. CINS thanks its special guests for the evening along with GHS Principal Dr. Murray and the GHS PTSA who will help CINS host this event for the Grady Cluster community.

CINS is a not-for-profit organization that has worked for over 35 years to empower public schools in our cluster located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia.

The Grady Cluster includes the following schools: Grady High, Intown Academy (K-8), Inman Middle, Centennial Place Elementary, Hope/Hill Elementary, Mary Lin Elementary, Morningside Elementary and Springdale Park Elementary.
