WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. YOUR FEEDBACK IS CRITICAL THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS.

The district held over two-dozen listening sessions during spring 2019, mailed 12,000 surveys directly to residents, and invited community input through an online survey. We encourage you to contact us through our Connect page with your questions and comments. 

Superintendent Aaron Sinclair is meeting with various community groups, and will be happy to meet with yours if you would like.

ELECTION DAY IS November 5.

Your participation and investment are important. On November 5, residents of Sauk Rapids and Rice will decide whether to replace Pleasantview Elementary as the first step in the district’s long-term facilities plan.
