Senior Seminar

The Akron Public Schools annual Senior Seminar program featured its first introductions today. At a morning get-together in the board room of the administration building, a dozen students from APS high schools were invited to meet Superintendent David W. James. (He's the tall guy in the necktie in the photo!)

Every year, APS brings a group of seniors from its high schools together in monthly meetings with the superintendent. Often in round-table discussions, students ask Mr. James just about anything about anything, and he gives them honest answers. It's a wonderful opportunity for the superintendent (who has a son and daughter) to stay in touch with students and learn about issues important to these students and their classmates.

For the students, Senior Seminar provides them with rare, close-up exposure to the person in charge of our 20,000-student school system and an chance to receive advice, guidance and support.
