AOS 91 Superintendent Dr. Marc Gousse joined WDEA's Chris Popper on Thursday, May 11th. Dr. Gousse talked about the first Community Conversation that was held at the Pemetic School on May 10th and the four essential questions that attendees are being asked to answer.

Those 4 questions are:

  3. What do you see as challenges for the schools? What can the school system do better?
