Dothan City Schools are preparing for the future by implementing a strategic plan.
Twenty members of the community have come together to put together a strategic plan for the Dothan City School system for the next five years.
However, it is just a rough draft and they need the community's help in finalizing it.
Four meetings will be held in two weeks for residents to give their input.
And education leaders say you don't have to have a child in the school to attend.
"We want the communities input before it is final and that's important because even if you don't have a student that's in the system we still want you to come because public education is important to this entire community not just if you have a student," said Tami Culver, president of the Dothan Education Foundation.
Educators hope to have this plan in place by next school year.
Meetings are scheduled for:
Tuesday, May 13, Dothan-Houston County Library, Main Branch-Community Room, 445 N. Oates St., 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Wednesday, May 14, Dothan-Houston County Library, Main Branch-Community Room, 445 N. Oates St., 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Wednesday, May 14, Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center-Rotary/Lions Hall, 795 Ross Clark Circle, 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Thursday, May 15, Andrew Belle Community Center, 1270 Lake St., 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
