Lack of state funding this year from the Minnesota State Legislature for a new K-12 school building has prompted the Rushford-Peterson School District to consider another option.
The school board has asked its architect and consultant to prepare cost estimates for a new elementary school instead. The district's request for $20 million from the legislature this year was not granted.
The Tri-County Record is reporting the school board wants to know if local voters would approve a referendum for a new K-4 or K-5 elementary building. The board has asked its architect and consultants to return with cost estimates to its July 16th meeting. The board may then consider holding a referendum in November to seek voter support.
