Wayzata Puplic Schools Futures Conference

District parents, residents and staff members will have another opportunity to help Wayzata Public Schools look into the future. A community conversation as a follow-up to the Futures Conference is scheduled for Monday, May 5, 6:30-9 p.m., in the media center of Central Middle School, 305 Vicksburg Lane, Plymouth.

Participants at the Futures Conference considered the impact of future trends on the district. At this session, participants will be asked to take the work from the Futures Conference a step further and provide additional direction for the district.

After a brief overview of issues from the Futures Conference, participants at the follow-up session will work in small groups to discuss the following questions:

  • What action steps would the district need to take to move toward providing more personalized learning for all students?
  • What action steps would the district need to take to provide opportunities for students to engage in global connections?
  • What action steps would the district need to take to be more flexible, adaptable and open to change?


The information generated from the small-group discussions will be used to help the district further define action steps for the district directions. The comments from each group will be summarized and reported back to the board.

The follow-up session is open to all parents, residents and staff members, not just those who attended the Futures Conference. Light refreshments will be provided.

If you are interested in participating in the conference, please call or email Bob Noyed, director of communication, at 763-745-5068 or robert.noyed@wayzata.k12.mn.us. There is no cost for the session, but registration is required. The number of participants is limited to 100 people so we encourage you to call or email as soon as possible.
