RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The new Richmond Public Schools superintendent is inviting the public to speak with him on what works within the school system and what needs work.

The event is called Community Conversations with Kamras and will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday at Blackwell Elementary School, located at 300 East 15th Street.

Jason Kamras was sworn in as the superintendent on Feb. 1. On Feb. 5, he released his 100-day plan that focuses on "three core education values: engagement, equity, and excellence."
