Each listening session will be focused on specific groups of people served by CMS. For example, school principals and staff each have their own town halls, as do community groups like the Steele Creek Association and Lake Norman Chamber.

Some of the town halls will be held in-person, while most are hosted online. The district has provided a full schedule for both days on its website, including the links for online-based meetings.
