Superintendent's 100 Day Plan

View the Plan

View the November 2020 Update

   The 100 Day Plan, shared with the Duluth School Board and community in July 2020, emphasizes the importance of preparing staff, families and students to respond to the pandemic, including detailed planning for  in-person, enhanced distance learning or a hybrid of both.  The safety of students, staff and families is a top priority, along with a high quality, engaging learning experience.

   In terms of equity, the plan includes reviewing implementation strategies for the district’s Education Equity Framework, analyzing district policies and procedures, conducting academic achievement and behavioral practices and launching dialog sessions with school advisory councils.

Community Vision and Priorities

We will build on our shared beliefs and values of unity, high achievement and responsible use of resources to create Duluth Public Schools and classrooms that are safe, supportive and inclusive. We will work to inspire every student to achieve their potential, and prepare students to lead productive, fulfilling lives as citizens of Duluth and the wider world.

Working together as educators, parents and citizens, we can make a difference for every student, every day.
