By WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Staff

JACKSON Tenn.- Jackson-Madison County School Board officials held an open forum Monday night to discuss with parents their search for a new superintendent.

Around seven parents took part in the open forum, many asking for a leader who could get the community more involved.

"It's very important. That right candidate would be someone that can engage that community in a way that we have not seen," said parent Lsana Djahpora

Parents' comments were recorded and will be sent to the BWP, the firm conducting the nationwide search.
