“The District’s greatest need is expansion of its facilities. Enrollment in the District is up and it will only go up from here on with all the developments in the area.”
- Edeth James, New Brighton Resident and Parent of Irondale High School student
Keeping Pace with Space
In response to increasing enrollment throughout the District, the Mounds View School Board established a 39-member facilities task force last fall. Reviewing data, reports and studies, the task force reported its findings to the School Board and administration in March. Detailed information about the findings for each school and recommendations across the District can be found at the Mounds View Public Schools/Facilities website.
For the first time in 18 years, Mounds View Public Schools will ask residents to consider a bond proposal this fall to add capacity at all schools throughout the District. In a unanimous vote on June 27, the School Board proposed a bond referendum for Election Day, November 7, 2017. If approved, funds from the bond would be used to add classroom space, improve infrastructure and enhance safety District wide.
