2015 Think Kids

posted Mar 11, 2015, 8:00 AM by Communications ISD 709

Save the Date:  2015 Think Kids Community Conversation March 30 – April 22

   Our community is helping to create schools that welcome children, inspire them and educate them for the future through annual Think Kids conversations.  

   “Think Kids is an invitation to everyone throughout Duluth,” says Superintendent Bill Gronseth.  “We invite parents, community and business leaders, teachers, grandparents, neighbors and more to participate in a community-wide discussion and decision-making process about the future of our schools.”

    During the 2015 Think Kids conversation participants will be asked what’s going well and what could be done better in Duluth’s schools.  Meetings will include five-year enrollment projections for elementary, middle and high schools based on results of a recent, in-depth demographic study.

    March 30 through April 22, ISD 709 staff and volunteers will be meeting with people from across our community to lead these important discussions.  Anyone who wishes to can share their ideas – no one is excluded. 

Please make plans to attend a Think Kids meeting – if you can’t make your neighborhood meeting, feel free to attend at another location.
