ISD 318 released its Return to Learn plan to the public on Friday, August 7 at isd318org/ReturnToLearn. The document details not only the plan to return for in-person learning this fall, but also options for hybrid and remote learning should cases in Itasca County rise.
The community is invited to preview the new elementary schools and the renovated Cohasset Elementary in ribbon-cutting ceremonies. An event will be held at each of the schools to commemorate the completion of the project. “From the beginning, the community has been involved in the project. We want to honor that involvement and celebrate our return to school with ribbon-cuttings at each elementary,” said ISD 318 Matt Grose. Separate ceremonies will be hosted at each school.
Principal Mark Schroeder has been named the Northeast Division’s High School Principal of the Year by the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP). “This is a remarkable way for Mark to cap off his final year as the principal of Grand Rapids High School,” said current GRHS Principal Matt Dass. “I was honored to work with Mark. He has been a terrific leader for our school community.”
The funds will be used to purchase additional 1:1 student devices and supporting technology. “In planning for the coming school year, we want to ensure that our students will have access to their teachers and support staff via iPads and hotspots if necessary,” said Teaching and Learning Director Sue Akre. “During the past school year’s distance learning period the iPads were our best way to connect with students. Beyond learning, the devices provided access to mental health supports and engagement with teachers and staff.”
