WESTPORT — When the subject is Westport’s public schools, there’s always a lot to talk about.
So the Board of Education, following up a “Community Conversation” it hosted last November, plans another open-ended dialogue with the public next week.
The discussion, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, in the Westport Library, is scheduled to include two sometimes-controversial topics there was no time to air at the earlier session, according to school officials. Those issues are:
- The “Banned Books” display at the Staples High School library last October.
- The school district’s plans to implement its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion study.
There also will be time for questions and discussion of other topics, organizers said.
In addition to school board members, top school administrators are scheduled to attend the gathering.
