Pinellas County school superintendent Mike Grego had an idea to share at Tuesday's School Board meeting.

He called for "listening sessions" to be held in the evenings out in the community to gather feedback on the district's plan to bridge the achievement gap between black and non-black students. District officials created handout versions of plans to be passed out to the public detailing how the district will reach those goals, which include graduation rates, student achievement, participation and performance in accelerated coursework, discipline and Exceptional Student Education (ESE).

Here are the first four scheduled meetings, which will all be from 6 to 7:30 p.m.:

Tuesday, Oct. 4 - Largo High School, 410 Missouri Ave N, Largo

Tuesday, Oct. 18 - Boca Ciega High School, 924 58th St S, Gulfport

Tuesday, Nov. 1 - Gibbs High School, 850 34th St S, St. Petersburg

Tuesday, Nov. 15 - Tarpon Springs High School, 1411 Gulf Rd, Tarpon Springs

1411 Gulf Rd, Tarpon Springs
