Newport School Superintendent Colleen Burns Jermain joins WUN for her monthly videocast at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. 

Among the issues we’ll discuss:

  • We’ll talk about the lingering impact of the pandemic and how the school system is trying to make up for lost learning. 
  • School construction projects – progress, timing, funding, and any changes to the initial plans.
  • Status of employee contracts.
  • Staffing

Have a question for the Superintendent? Leave it on the Facebook post below before or during the conversation. We’ll get to as many questions as possible.
