Our school district mission is to educate and inspire all students as they realize their full potential and become respectful, responsible, and productive citizens. We are proud of our school district and community, and we greatly appreciate the support you have shown us for many years.

After making budget reductions totaling over $2.4 million during a three-year period, the school board spent several months reviewing budget assumptions and projections before authorizing an operating levy referendum. On November 7, community members will be voting on two questions related to the operating of the school district. If approved, funding will help support the general fund, which pays for teaching positions, targeted support for struggling and gifted learners, professional development, curriculum, technology, sports and activity programs, and other areas that impact student learning.

Most Minnesota school districts rely upon voter-approved operating levy funding to operate their schools. We invite you to review this brochure so you have the information you need when you vote. As always, please contact Superintendent Karsten Anderson or any board member if you have questions or suggestions.
