Welcome to the Minneota Public School District's website. I know that this site will serve as a powerful communication tool for students, staff, parents, and the community. 2017-2018 is my tenth year in Minneota, and I am proud to serve as the Superintendent of Schools!
The staff at Minneota Schools work extremely hard to provide your child with a first class education. Over the past five years, our District has greatly increased our student achievement and according to SchoolDigger.com, we are now ranked as the 19th best school district in Minnesota out of 441 districts! We also provide top-notch opportunities in the fine arts, athletics, and non-Minnesota High School League activities; we are one of the smallest school districts in the state to offer robotics, and our FFA and speech programs have grown immensely over the past few years. Our student participation rate in after-school activities exceeds 80%.
Our school board has also made the commitment to keep the building and grounds up-to-date and modern. During the summer of 2015, a new entrance was built to help provide a safer way for people to enter the building. In 2016, new air handlers were installed to help provide better air quality throughout the building. Other areas renovated in 2016 include a new concession stand, new bathrooms on the main floor, remodeled bathrooms on the second floor, outside landscaping, new LED lights, new cabinets/sinks in the FACS room, and a new commons area to eat during events.
On August 22, 2017, the Minneota School District held a bond election to replace the tile floor, construct new elementary bathrooms, re-do the varsity locker rooms and add a new visitor’s locker room, add LED lights to the entire school district building, update air handlers and add an air handler to the serve the locker rooms, expand the classroom space for the kindergarten/preschool rooms along with the FACS room, and improve the outside aesthetics to the elementary school. This vote passed 424 to 251. We are excited to receive such support from the community to make these necessary improvements!
I am positive you will find our highly qualified staff friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help our students reach their goals. Honestly, I cannot think of a better place to have your child receive his/her education!
