PARENTS, pupils and residents in Helensburgh and Lomond will have a chance to share their views on plans to change the leadership structure at many Argyll and Bute schools from next month.

As previously reported in the Advertiser, the council put plans for change on hold in June after it was criticised for a lack of consultation on proposals which would, among other measures, have seen some schools lose their individual head teachers.

The proposals will be made public in November and views can be shared between then and March through email, ‘self-led group engagement’, and virtual drop-in sessions.

A timetable set out by the local authority says consultation with head teachers, unions and professional bodies will begin this month, with refined proposals to be presented to the council and public in May.
