Grand Forks Superintendent Terry Brenner will be back to answer more reader questions during a live forum hosted by the Grand Forks Herald at noon, Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Schools in the Grand Forks School District will shift to online-only learning between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday breaks, according to a plan approved Monday, Nov. 16, by the Grand Forks School Board.

The change in learning format is necessary to allow teachers and paraprofessionals to “recapture their health,” which has been affected by illness and excessive stress caused by work demands, as well as the health of their family members, Brenner said.

A livestream of the forum will be available to watch here starting at noon. For those who can't login and watch at noon a video will be available to watch after the event has concluded.
