Talks with Todd

South Bend Schools Superintendent continues online engagement with stakeholders

After a three-month hiatus, South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC) Superintendent Dr. Todd Cummings will resume his “Talks with Todd” events that provide parents, teachers, staff, students, and community members the opportunity to hear directly from district leadership about issues impacting the community’s public schools.

Unlike previous “Talks with Todd” events that covered all topics related to SBCSC, the upcoming events will be specifically focused with targeted topics. Only questions related to the designated topics will be addressed during the live forums. An additional change is that registration is required (links below).

On Tuesday, May 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Dr. Cummings, together with Chief Financial Officer Ms. Kareemah Fowler, will broadly address the corporation’s finances -- teacher raises, other funding priorities, COVID relief funding, referendum funds, and other related issues. Registration link here.

The next “Talks with Todd” will be held on Tuesday, June 1, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the topics addressed will be broadly based on academics, including summer learning (and other remediation strategies), end of year testing, graduation, enrollment for next year, magnet programs, and related issues. Registration link here.

“We look forward to resuming these community conversations and promoting engagement across the district,” Cummings said. “This year has been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced, and I’m eager to reconnect with parents, teachers, and others who have worked so hard to get through the year.”

The virtual “Talks with Todd” events have generated more than ten times the number of participants than the in-person events, reaching more than 3,000 people to date.
