By Beth Milligan | Nov. 18, 2019

Community group TCAPS Transparency will hold a public forum Wednesday, November 20 with Traverse City Area Public Schools Interim Superintendent Jim Pavelka.

The forum will take place from 7pm to 8:30pm in SH109 at Scholars Hall (next to the Dennos Museum Center) on the NMC campus. Event seating is limited, with free tickets available online here. According to TCAPS Transparency, the forum will focus on questions including:

> Who is Jim Pavelka?
> What happened with (former superintendent) Ann Cardon?
> How are schools funded? What is unequal funding? Why is the SFRC (School Finance Research Collaborative) important?
> What is the “Blueprint”?
>A look toward the future

TCAPS Transparency’s mission is to "promote transparency, good governance, and fiscal responsibility within the TCAPS Board of Education," according to the organization. "TCAPS Transparency is a community organization that cares about the continued success of the Traverse City Area Public Schools. In our attempt to educate and develop an aware community, the TCAPS Transparency Community Forum aims to ask tough questions, address our current situation, encourage positive change, and define our future."
