Critical week ahead for Memphis Shelby schools merger team

This morning's story lays out the busy week ahead for Shelby County's schools merger Transition Planning Commission, with three full meetings over the next six workdays. The two key items on the agenda for today's meeting -- 4:30 p.m. at 6465 Mullins Station Road (map here) -- concern contracting with Boston Consulting Group for help in managing the work involved with creating a plan for merging Memphis City Schools with Shelby County Schools.

On Monday at Christian Brothers University, the merger team meets with officials from the highly-regarded Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district to talk about how to best organize a successful large urban district, and next Thursday the planning commission will have what it is calling a "Vision Meeting" facilitated by Boston Consulting Group.

It should be possible to catch the bulk of the TPC meeting and still make it to the Stand For Children merger forum at 6 at Second Presbyterian Church. See our schools calendar for more details.
