Public hearing addresses Waubun school overhaul

WAUBUN, Minn. – At a public hearing the Waubun-Ogema-White Earth School Board held Tuesday night, Superintendent Mitch Anderson explained how the School Improvement Grant – federal overhaul program – would affect Waubun School.

Waubun School has been identified as one of the worst performing schools in the state based on its standardized test scores.

As a result, a share of the School Improvement Grant, will be used to overhaul the school. Waubun will receive about $1 million over the next three years.

The Minnesota Department of Education will assign a consulting firm to visit the school and assess its need before recommending one of four options to the board. The four options are: the turnaround, transformation, start-up model or closing the school.
