Flint schools to hold final community meeting on COVID-19 expenses on Friday

FLINT, MI — The final Flint Schools Community Forum is scheduled to take place this Friday.

9-11 a.m. Friday, February 18 at Pierce Elementary, 1101 W. Vernon Drive, and on Zoomthe district will host the 10th of 10 community forums the district uses to guide COVID-19 fundraising expenditures.

The final community meeting in the series was repeatedly delayed as the district experienced multiple closures through December and did not do in-person learning for a period following winter vacation.

The first nine forums took place from November 30 to December 14. They are part of a new, long-term district initiative called “Future Focused: Renovating, Rebuilding and Re-energizing.”

Facilitated by Superintendent Kevin Jones, attendees will be asked several questions from the District which they can answer using sticky notes. These questions include:

  • How can FCS use COVID-19/ESSER funds to ensure initiatives and interventions address academic learning loss for scholars?
  • How should FCS use COVID-19/ESSER funds to renovate schools to create a cleaner and safer learning environment?
  • Regarding the future of FCS, would you like the district to invest in building new schools in the community? What elements would you like to see in a new school (i.e. sports complex, library, gymnasium, fine arts spaces, etc.)?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new state-of-the-art elementary school?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new, state-of-the-art middle school?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new, state-of-the-art high school?
