School growth talk slated in Wayzata

  • Updated: August 24, 2013 - 5:01 PM

Officials with Wayzata Public Schools will present a plan at the Sept. 9 school board meeting to disclose how the district anticipates it will accommodate projected enrollment growth.

The district is experiencing the most growth at the elementary and high school levels. In the past, school officials have discussed building a new high school addition and a new elementary school in the northern part of the district.

The factors driving projected enrollment growth in Wayzata include more homes built in the northern part of the district, larger classes of students already enrolled and more classrooms needed for all-day kindergarten.

School officials have already said they expect to put a bond referendum before voters in 2014. Preliminary building estimates show total costs in excess of $100 million.

More information about the district’s plans to address enrollment growth is available at www.wayzata.k12.mn.us.
