Thank you for attending the
2014 Partnering for Education Luncheon
More than 180 parents, business leaders and community members enjoyed a presentation by Robert H. Bruininks
, President Emeritus of the University of Minnesota, last week at North Oaks Golf Club.
Bruininks discussed how college readiness begins with early childhood education. He cited the Mounds View district's innovative Early College programs as well as the statistic that 97% of district juniors take the ACT exam as examples of its commitment to preparing students for success after high school.
Superintendent Dan Hoverman provided an update on the district and how it is working to address not only the achievemnt gap, but paying closer attention to the aspiration, opportunity and expectation gaps as well.
Thank you to our event sponsors:
Jim and Jill Ostlund
