District 196 is facing an important decision on facilities that has implications for every school in the district
All District 196 stakeholders are invited to attend one of three meetings Nov. 15, 16 and 17 to get information about facilities, equipment and space needs in District 196, and provide feedback on possible improvements being considered to meet those needs in the state’s fourth largest school district.
Independent School District 196 is ranked fourth of the 50 Minnesota employers that made Forbes’ annual list of Best-in-State Employers for 2022.

What happens if the iPad issued by the school gets damaged? In previous years the district offered an Optional Protection Plan for $20/device. However the decision was made to automatically enroll ALL iPads in this coverage at no cost to families for the 2020-21 school year.
