Design Team

  • The Board approved a collaborative engagement process led by the Bureau of Mediation Services and the Dispute Resolution Institute at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. One of the first steps in the public engagement process is to form a design team. The team, which met for the first time on Oct. 26, is composed of people who represent a wide variety of stakeholders. They will work with facilitators to create a plan for community input to inform the superintendent search.
