Fisher, MN — The Fisher School Board held their final regular monthly meeting of the 2020 calendar year on Monday night. A big part of the discussions was their learning model. The district is currently in distance learning and has been so since the beginning of November. With the number of new cases dropping locally, Fisher Superintendent Evan Hanson is hoping they can return to some sort of in-person or hybrid learning model after the holiday break. However, they won’t make that determination until the end of December.

Superintendent Hanson says he’s crossing his fingers and hoping that COVID positivity rates continue to drop or at least hold steady, because students get the best education while in the classroom.

The Fisher School Board also certified the 2021 levy. Hanson notes that Fisher taxpayers may actually notice a reduction in their taxes from the school next year with enrollment dropping slightly over the past couple years.

The Fisher School Board will meet again in special session on December 28th to determine their learning model for after the holiday break.
