If schools and communities had their versions of Frank Locker, the kids and the taxpayers would be well-served.
- Dr Duke Albanese, former Maine State Commissioner of Education
I was very impressed with the way Frank accommodated ideas from the group and suggested solutions that would ultimately form a foundation for our vision of facilities for the next 25 years. He truly has a gift in bringing communities together.

The process (Frank established) was great. I loved how it incorporated many people, from many venues of the city, from parents, to city officials, to university folks, to students, to teachers and administrators. The final product is much richer than anything we could have done on our own! Everyone had a voice, and an opportunity to be part of the exciting vision.
- Jeanne Collins, Superintendent, Burlington School District, Burlington, VT
It was a wonderful process he walked us through – and half the joy was Frank himself. He worked with students, staff, community members, and parents. At all times he was open, inviting, stimulating, and comfortable in his facilitation. He was able to tease out information, opinions, insights that we were unaware of, but needed to recognize.

Frank has helped our education group to engage our clients and communities in a thoughtful discussion about teaching and learning in the 21st century.

The "Futures Team" visioning document has been a tremendous asset as the district continues to work with the Maine Department of Education on creating a "learning campus" that will serve the needs of future generations of students, the nine communities comprising the district, and area school systems.
