March 19th marked the day when more than 160 gathered at the Lafayette Club to honor OUR own Sandy Lewandowski as the Superintendent of the Year 2015.
Here's what Sandy had to say about the event:
"I expected it to be wonderful, but it was such a moving experience with friends, family, colleagues and board members coming together in a way that is very hard to describe. It was deeply moving. To be sure, I will never forget last night. Of all the wonderful experiences I have had this year, this was by far, the BEST."
We also have a slide show of the Celebration.
Two District 287 Alternative Learning Centers (ALC) that offer similar programs are located at different locations. South Education Center Academy (SECA) is in Richfield, and North Education Center Academy (NECA) is in New Hope.
Recently, SECA Principal Jayne Tiedemann and AVID Instructor Beth Kowski shared what students can expect if they enroll in SECA. And, students shared "selfies" about their experiences in the school.
Hennepin Gateway to College is part of a national high school-to-college program designed to encourage students who are at risk of dropping out, to stay in or return to school.
This is the second year of the partnership with Hennepin Technical College, Brooklyn Park. Meet our HGtC students as they share their experiences on the college campus.
