Coffee with the Superintendent

Tucked away in the back room of Veronica’s Cafe in Kenai, superintendent for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, Sean Dusek, met with a handful of teachers, principals and public officials Friday morning. During the meeting, the group discussed on everything from health care and test scores, to personalized learning and more. Coffee with the Superintendent is an event the school district puts on periodically to give parents, teachers and concerned members of the public an opportunity to sit and share their thoughts about happenings with the school district.
