This month, we'll be joined by the chair of the Minneapolis schools board, coming to share her perspectives on state of the district. Issues may include the new superintendent (five months into his new job), the looming referendum, the impact of federal healthy lunch standards, and the still-large achievement gap.

 

Jenny represents district 1, comprised of northeast and southeast Minneapolis. Jenny earned her bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf and master’s degree from the University of Minnesota, both degrees in social work. Jenny is a third generation Edison graduate. She lives in Northeast with her husband and three sons who currently attend Waite Park and Edison High School.

Jenny’s professional experience, primarily in North Minneapolis, includes working with pregnant and parenting teens, leading social skill groups in Minneapolis Public Schools and providing emergency services for families. Her passion lies in fighting for strong urban schools.

 

Free and open to the public! Come early, buy your coffee (the law is you can't bring food or drinks into a restaurant), learn a lot and have your questions ready.
