It’s here and you’re invited!

After more than a year and a half of community outreach and research, we’re ready to share our plan for remodeling education in the Manchester School District. We need one more thing before we present our ideas to the Board of School Committee in mid-February: Your feedback.

Join us in December for three community forums. Each night will focus on a different part of our plan.

The ideas you’ll see are from our Community Planning Group, a collection of 29 Manchester parents, students, educators, school administrators, community members, and our superintendent. Visit our Community Planning Group page for a list of members.

This is a plan written by the people of Manchester, for the people of Manchester. 

All forums will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Interpreters for Spanish, French, Swahili, Arabic, Nepali, and Vietnamese will be provided.
