Schools Looking For Input

Posted: Updated:

Minot Public Schools is continuing to develop a long term plan for the future of education in the Magic City.

Superintendent Mark Vollmer says is big part of the direction is coming from the community itself.

Thursday night the district is hosting its' 2nd public input forum at Magic City Campus to get ideas on what people want to see in terms of facilities, education opportunities and more.

Vollmer says about 250 people participated in the first meeting and he'd like to see and even greater turnout Thursday night.

(Mark Vollmer, MPS Superintendent) "A lot of good ideas, a lot of discussion about two high school models eventually for Minot as we continue to grow, where elementary schools should be located in a growing city and how do we use the existing buildings in our district to their whole capacity that we can. A lot of discussion and a lot of good input.

Whether you have school aged children or not, you are encouraged to attend the public input meeting at Magic City Campus Thursday night. The meeting begins at 7pm in the commons area.
