Audubon, MN — The Lake Park-Audubon School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. The school board is moving closer and closer to moving forward with a building bond referendum officially going out to voters. At this point, the Lake Park-Audubon Growth and Long Term Planning Committee is looking at potentially going to the voters with a more than $20 million building project to expand and renovate the elementary, amongst other facility needs. Lake Park-Audubon Superintendent Dr. Paula Henry says they are currently proposing to hold the referendum vote in April of 2021.

If the Lake Park-Audubon School Board approves going forward with the building referendum vote in April, a communication plan would be put in place to get the word out to LPA voters. In the meantime, Dr. Henry notes that there is a new website that can answer a lot of their questions.

Also at this week’s board, Superintendent Henry provided an update on their learning model and how they’re adjusting. The High School is currently in a hybrid model and the elementary is full, in-person, but staffing continues to remain one of the biggest challenges during this pandemic.

The Lake Park-Audubon School Board meets on the 4th Monday of each month.
