District 196 is facing an important decision on facilities that has implications for every school in the district
We are a District 196 school that encourages students to respect all individuals and explore educational challenges. We are committed to helping students rise above the ashes and reach their full potential.
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.
The Educational Benefits applications ensures students have access to nutritious meals and provides critical funding for schools.
Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2022 are scheduled for May and early June, during which 2,117 students will graduate.
In recognition of this important declaration, we encourage District 196 families to explore the rich history of indigenous people around the United States and in Minnesota.
Due to rising case rates and increased community spread of COVID-19, our middle school and high school students will shift to full-time distance. Elementary students will remain in hybrid.
The district has a process and timeline for determining when to shift to a different learning model based on multiple data points and factors.
Both calendars are based on an all in-person learning model, although the district does plan to continue to offer the 196 Digital Academy as an all distance learning option for families.
Register now for fall learning opportunities. As always, the safety of you, your family and our staff is our primary concern.
