CommUNITY Conversations

CommUNITY Conversations are an opportunity for citizens to talk with the Superintendent and other members of the Mason City Schools leadership team. By bringing people together to share stories and discuss issues that matter, we expand our sense of neighborhood and bridge divides through the power of connections and relationships.  CommUNITY Conversations are often hosted in people's homes, businesses, or places of worship. Sometimes, the district hosts a Special Edition CommUNITY conversation about an issue. CommUNITY Conversations are where we find common ground when confronting and solving difficult issues.  Some of the topics we have discussed include ensuring equity and inclusion, mental wellness, school safety, school start times, school finances, and other topics that need community input.

Host a CommUNITY Conversation

Would you like to host a CommUNITY Conversation? Invite ten or more people into your home and Superintendent Dr. Cooper will share Mason City Schools' story and answer questions. Email CommunityConvo@masonohioschools.com or call 513.398.0474, ext. 24004 with the best dates and times.
