Latest News & Notes
Congratulations Wayzata! Both ballot questions passed with resounding support. We all initially made the choice to come to this district and to be a part of a community with a decidedly big high school. These results demonstrate...
We have a good problem.
Good: Our schools are great and our district is growing.
Problem: We need more space.
Wayzata Schools have a reputation of excellence. It continues to draw builders and families to our district. So much development has been approved in Medina, Maple Grove and Plymouth that we are outgrowing our facilities.
Our district, and our administration, is responsible for providing an education to every child within its borders. They can’t control the development but they are responsible for accommodating the students and families that the development brings to isd 284.
If the referendum doesn’t pass we are back to the drawing board, and our schools will get more and more crowded while the administration figures out another option. The kids are coming, so they will be crowded into our current facilities until a permanent solution is determined. We will not have our needed 14-16 elementary classrooms, and our class sizes at the middle schools and the high school will become bigger and less manageable.
The proposed solution provides the best opportunity for our district to be able to come together as one community to give each and every student the very best that public education can offer.
A solution that continues our tradition of
financial stability, community involvement and academic excellence.
