Future Focused Community Forum Presentation

Flint Community Schools has officially launched its community forum meetings, hosted both in-person and via Zoom. Participants can also submit their input via a Google Survey, linked here. The community forum meetings will be used to gather input to determine the use of $99 million in ESSER III funds as well as potential grant funding that FCS has been invited to apply for from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to help create a bright future for Flint kids.
 
Superintendent Jones' full presentation from the community forums can be found below, or linked here
 
Each community forum meeting will ask participants the following questions:
  • How can FCS use COVID-19/ESSER funds to ensure initiatives and interventions address the academic learning loss of scholars?
  • How should FCS use COVID-19/ESSER funds to renovate the schools to create a cleaner, safer learning environment?
  • As it pertains to the future of FCS, would you like the district to invest in building new schools in the community? What components would you like to see in a new school (i.e. sports complex, library, gymnasium, fine arts spaces, etc.)?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new state-of-the-art elementary school?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new state-of-the-art middle school?
  • What innovative programs and services would you like to see FCS offer in a new state-of-the-art high school?
