Meeting on potential DL school facility projects set for tonight at Rossman

The Detroit Lakes School District is moving into “Phase 2” of its planning for a potential building bond referendum in November, by scheduling a new round of community engagement meetings.

The first of those meetings is set to take place tonight (Wednesday, June 20) at 6:30 p.m. in the media center at Rossman Elementary School. Two additional meetings are scheduled for the following Wednesday, June 27, with one to be held at 11 a.m. in the media center of Detroit Lakes Middle School, and the other to take place at 6:30 p.m. in the media center at Detroit Lakes High School.

According to Superintendent Doug Froke, “these events will summarize the feedback obtained from community engagement meetings held this spring, and will include estimated costs of potential improvement projects, as well as ideas brought forward and being considered by the school board.”

The district is currently eyeing a potential bond referendum vote for school facility improvements as part of the Nov. 6 general election.
