Hermantown is doing its own LTFP (long term facilities planning) right now – without the help of JCI, thank you very much. Part of their planning has to take into consideration the growing list of families fleeing the Duluth School system and the subsequent overcrowding. I’ve heard they are talking about new building.
When I served on the Duluth School Board, District administrators were a little smug about the inability of Duluth parents to transfer their children out to other schools because the outside district’s didn’t have room for large numbers of open enrolled Duluth kids.
Dr. Dixon has changed that equation.
