CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Educators, school administrators, and members of the community gathered Monday to hear a long list of recommendations created by a special district task force.
 

More than 300 people met inside West Charlotte high school auditorium.
 

Representatives of the 22 groups highlighted the recommendations in an array of topics: Early childhood education, magnets of choice, and gifted students to teacher compensation.
 

Charlotte-Meckleburg School employees partnered with citizens in the community back in November.
 

The district plans to use their findings to develop a long-term strategic plan.
 

Superintendent Heath Morrison says the recommendations are a direct reflection of the concerns of the community.
 

He says the recommendations will be categorized into plans that can be carried out immediately, and those that would require extra funding.
 

Along with improving community engagement and increasing partnerships, the district says incorporating technology in the classroom is an issue many task groups have addressed.
 

The public will get a chance to see the recommendation in detail on Wednesday when the full reports become available on the CMS website.
