District 281 listening forum update

Our first listening session was held in May 5 in Crystal on education issues. 15 attended, along with incoming 281 Superintendent Dr. Aldo Sicoli. A blogger, John of “Give 2 Attain” also attended and posted his thoughts:

  • I felt safer since there were no attendees with horns, tails or devil’s forks… Just people who want their communities, schools and children to succeed.
  • I was pleasantly surprised that Dr Sicoli sat in, listened and made a few general comments regarding education policy in Minnesota.
  • I was disappointed as usual by the low attendance / citizen engagement. 70,000+ adult citizens in the community and ~15 were present. Hopefully it will grow.
  • I think it will be really hard for the diverse group to develop a common educational concept / platform, however the dialogue will definitely be beneficial to all who attend.

Thanks to all who attended. We will post soon on the upcoming follow-up session in June, and the planned next steps on this issue.
