ROCHESTER, Minn. - It’s an outlet for parents to share questions and concerns to their school district, a “Superintendent Listening Post.”
Rochester Public Schools tells KIMT they try to have them quarterly.
Parents can come and have open discussion with Rochester Public Schools’ Superintendent Michael Munoz.
John Church is a father of two and showed up for the one on Wednesday. He said something he thinks about often is the possibility of new school buildings in the district.
"Just curious kinda what the hold up is and moving ahead with that," Church said. "Seems like this area is booming and we definitely need more schools."
Church said he's not the only parent with concerns, but said attendance can be low at these listening posts.
"Yeah 12:30 on a Wednesday, probably not the most ideal time for people for instance that work at Mayo," Church said.
He suggests more advertising from the district so more parents know about them.
