The district is providing an online form for people who wish to provide feedback but who cannot attend the first session, Feb. 19.
According to Superintendent Scot Graden, Wednesday's meeting was rescheduled after considering the format and timing of the meetings.
"We are convinced that we can and should do a better job of collecting feedback from stakeholders throughout our community. We believe deeply in the need for all voices to be heard related to the ongoing dialogue in our community around issues of racism," Graden wrote in a news release posted on the district's website.
