Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed, Superintendent, and Katie Williams, Director of Community Education, both represented Hopkins Public Schools at Rotary. It is an exciting time at Hopkins, with the new superintendent starting this past July, and three big questions for the voters on this November's ballot. Dr. Mhiripiri-Reed is native to Minnesota, having graduated from Bloomington Public Schools. She's been across the country, learning and working in public education for over 15 years. She spoke about the almost 7,000 students in the nine Hopkins schools. Around 42% are students of color and 46 languages are spoken. This fall, voters have an opportunity to vote on three ballot questions posed by the school district: a bond, a capital projects levy, and an operating levy.
