It's that time of year again where Hillsborough's superintendent hits the road to give her views and get feedback from the public. MaryEllen Elia initiated her town hall meetings shortly after taking the district's top job, and she's kept doing it even though the rooms often are half-filled, mostly by folks who want to complain and by district employees seeking some insights. She says the sessions help her do her job better.
Here's the schedule.
