Commissioner Jett Visits Discovery Community School

Minnesota Commissioner of Education Willie Jett met with administrators from St. Cloud Area School District 742 and Discovery Community School to learn more about the Full-Service Community School grant awarded to the district. 

A full-service community school provides education and other support services such as food, dental, vision and mental health. The district was awarded a $2.5M grant in November 2023. Two sites will host the full-service community school: Discovery Community School and North Junior High School. The planning phase will begin in January of 2024. 

While visiting Discovery Community School, Jett also spent time in the Somali Dual Language Immersion kindergarten classroom where students sang and practiced the Somali alphabet for Commissioner Jett.
