Manchester Proud wants to hear directly from you about your experiences in Manchester! We will be holding listening sessions across the city to hear from students, families, teachers, and district and support staff on what’s important to them, the challenges and opportunities they see, and their vision for the city and its schools. Each 60-minute session will be held at a city school and will give Manchester Proud an opportunity to hear directly from affinity groups about their experiences within the individual school, as well as the overall district and city. These are intentionally designed to be small-group sessions so that all participants have time to be heard.  Trained facilitators will guide the discussion with open-ended questions and record the responses (all of which will be kept confidential!). The sessions listed below are school-based, limited to those who work or care for students in the school. Our broader community listening sessions will begin in December!

Listening sessions are grouped by audience segment so that we can gather feedback and categorically submit it for future planning. If you do not see a group that represents your interest in Manchester Public Schools, please let us know at outreach@manchesterproud.org

Interested in participating? RSVP by completing this quick form. After you RSVP, we will reach out to you to confirm the date and time of the listening session that corresponds with your school. If you have difficulty accessing the form, please email outreach@manchesterproud.org.

If we do not have any RSVPs at least 24 hours in advance, the session will be canceled.
