The Marshalltown Community School District will hold another set of parent rallies on Monday, August 10 and Tuesday, August 11.

The rallies are free and open to the public and will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on both nights in the Marshalltown Public Library (conference room B), 105 W. Boone St.

The rallies are designed for school district staff to receive feedback from parents and families from Marshalltown Schools and others in the community.

These two rallies will have a special focus for families from Burma, but all are welcome.

The rallies will be moderated by Marisa Rivera, who has decades of experience as an educational consultant and in leadership development. She is president of the consulting firm Mpowerment Works

Light refreshments will be served. These rallies come on the heels of two rallies held in June, which also offered opportunity for community feedback.
