Welcome to Great and “DARE”ing Ideas! This blog is intended to help the parents and teachers of Durham Public Schools share great ideas. If you are part of an exciting program at your school, such as an after-school language class or a community garden, tell us about it! Similarly, if you’d like to start a backpack program or a community garden at your school, but don’t know how, pose a question on the blog and see if someone at another school has any ideas. Durham is filled with talented people with innovative ideas; let’s help each other to achieve even more success!
