John Dornan, Executive Director of the Public School Forum of NC, presents A Roadmap to Need: Cross-Sector Data Presentation. This 14-minute presentation highlights wellness issues across the state of North Carolina using a variety of indicators. Dornan's data was part of the City of Asheville REgional Afterschool Summit: Partnering for Results for Youth, Community and Economic Development held at the Asheville Civic Center on November 4, 2010. The 'health' of each of NC's 100 counties is displayed by quartiles and Dornan challenges communities to work together for the health and welfare of their citizens.
We're glad to know these decisions are being made with care and with safety in mind. Sometimes schools add a few minutes to the day for an extended period to make up the missed time. That would be a way to make up the time without too much inconvenience.
