Folks had a chance to weigh in on how well the Duluth School District is serving students.
A Think Kids meeting got underway at Denfeld High School Wednesday. The first few meetings were canceled because of weather.
These meetings allow community members to share with school officials what they think is going well and what needs to change in the district.
"We all have a voice in how we function as a school district and the direction that we take," Superintendent Bill Gronseth said. "It's important that people come out and have their voice be heard."
These meetings debuted last year. Gronseth said the biggest priority for people was class size.
Gronseth said that problem is tied to the budget and can be solved in several ways. For example, hiring more teachers and balancing the population between schools.
The next Think Kids meetings are Thursday at Laura MacArthur Elementary School and Lester Park Elementary School.
