Duluth School District’s, “Education After Hours”
Duluth Public Schools is launching, “Education After Hours,” a comprehensive listening tour of the district over the next several months at a wide variety of sites. Community members will have the unique opportunity to attend a meeting and have dialogue with the Superintendent and voice any questions or concerns they have. Superintendent John Magas was hired in March 2020 and fast forward three years later, his main goal now is to spend as much time in schools as well as in the community as possible. “Education After Hours” is a crucial element of that effort.
“We’re specifically working to make sure that we’re reaching out to communities that are sometimes underrepresented and maybe have been marginalized and don’t have as much voice. It’s really important to us to listen to the stakeholders and hear what they want so that we can move forward together,” says John Magas, Superintendent of Duluth School District.
“After Hours,” will be held at multiple locations all across the district every other Tuesday to reach the widest audience.
Now, one of the biggest challenges our schools went through in recent history was Covid-19. Today it is still difficult for students to have any semblance of academic normalcy.
“We want to make sure that we have as much support for those students as possible, not just academic support, which is probably the first most important thing in the school. But we also think about what mental health supports we do have, and what social emotional supports we have to be sure that the behaviors supports are there for students,” finishes Magas.
