The Wayzata School District continues to grow. This month’s Legislative Action Committee meeting included an update from the District 284 Growth Task Force, which recommended another new elementary school to be in the works.
A few fast facts from the Wayzata School District website:
- If current housing trends continue, the district can expect approximately another 1,000 new students K-12 by 2019.
- Even though we opened Meadow Ridge Elementary in fall 2016, made boundary adjustments to right-size all our elementary schools in fall 2016 and will open an addition to Meadow Ridge in fall 2018 – we still need to add capacity at the elementary level to accommodate resident student growth.
- While we have capacity issues at the elementary level, projections show we have adequate space at the middle schools and high school through at least 2030.
It’s certain there will be a lot more conversation on the topic. As the school years continues, we will bring highlights and notes that can help educate you and your family and would welcome your questions, feedback or opinions on the matters!
