Listen and Learn Community Events – The purpose of these six (6) events will be to give Dr. Schumann an opportunity to introduce himself and the Leadership Cabinet to community members and invite their questions and comments about the current state of the Enfield Public Schools and what they envision for the future for the school system. Each of these events will be 1.5 hours in length and occur from 6:30 p.m.to 8:00 p.m. to enable parents and community members to attend after the work day. Notes will be taken at the events and used to find common themes among the sessions to inform the work going forward.
