Carlton Superintendent Gwen Carman recently met with two other area superintendents to discuss the possibility of consolidation or collaboration.

During her report to the Carlton School Board on Monday, May 20, Carman said she met with Cloquet Superintendent Michael Cary to discuss the potential consolidation of the two districts. The two plan to meet again in early June to discuss the specifics of consolidation and its impact on the staff, students and taxpayers of both districts.

Carman stressed that the discussions were not "in any way" consolidation negotiations, since that role is left to the two school boards.

Earlier in the day Monday, Carman also met with Fond du Lac Ojibwe Superintendent Jennifer Murray regarding the potential for collaboration between the schools. Carman described the meeting as a "brainstorming" session for areas of collaboration that include, but aren't limited to, academics, athletics and cultural education.
