Superintendent Dan Gutekanst shares his thoughts on having productive conversations within the school community.
As a new school year kicks off this week, the Superintendent of Schools is sure there is going to be some confusion. The last three years have been far from typical, and parents, teachers and administrators have all had moments of frustration when it comes to figuring out solutions to problems and how to best serve the students of Needham. Unfortunately, that frustration has been expressed, at times, in ways that were unhelpful in moving the conversations forward. In order to get ahead of the situation this year, Superintendent Gutekanst provided parents with a primer on how to foster effective dialogue and how to best advocate for your children.
