Michael Thurmond, interim superintendent of the DeKalb County School System, will appear at Oak Grove Elementary School on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 9 a.m.
This will be his first public appearance, aside from school board meetings, since being appointed on Feb. 8. He will make a speech and take questions from parents.
"He understands people want to be assured that the board is going in the right direction," Board Vice Chairman Jim McMahan told Patch by telephone Friday morning. "I appreciate his willingness to get out there."
