School District 166 looking at different scenarios for school in the fall

The School District 166 school board has a lot on its plate right now–the school is in the midst of negotiations with the Grand Marais Playhouse on its lease for the Arrowhead Center for the Arts, and a “Respect for All” Initiative has just been launched. You can learn more about that in interviews with ISD 166 Superintendent Dr. Bill Crandall and School Board Chair Dan Shirley here and with Grand Marais Playhouse Director Sue Hennessy here.

The school board has more than that to consider, though, including deciding what fall 2020 will look like for returning students. The school board reviewed three scenarios for how a return to school could work. No decisions were made, but the school board was asked to consider how to proceed.
WTIP’s Rhonda Silence speaks with Superintendent Crandall about that in this interview, as well as more routine matters such as curriculum purchases and hiring of staff.

The next school board meeting is Thursday, July 16 from 5 to 7 p.m.
