Our children need schools that welcome them, inspire them and educate them for the future. How we create those schools is up to all of us — as a community.
“Think Kids is an invitation to everyone throughout Duluth,” says Superintendent Bill Gronseth. “We invite families, community and business leaders, teachers, grandparents, neighbors and more to participate in a community-wide discussion and decision-making process about prioritizing the work of our schools.”
In general, participants will be asked about education equity, priorities for early childhood, elementary, high school and middle school, classroom technology, budgets and more.
Public schools across the country face challenges in terms of funding, curriculum, school climate and other issues. Duluth is no exception.
“The goal of Think Kids is to discuss opportunities and challenges and work together as a community to create a strong vision to meet those challenges,” says Gronseth.
Anyone who wishes to can share their ideas – no one is excluded.
