The Grand Rapids Area Learning Center provides alternative educational programming for students that are at risk of not graduating from high school. Services are provided to students from several school districts including Greenway, Nashwauk-Keewatin, Remer, Deer River, Hill City, and Bigfork. In addition to our Independent Study Program, we offer Night School, Summer School, and provide educational services for the Teen Age Pregnancy Program (TAPP).
The Minnesota Elementary School Principals’ Association (MESPA) recognized Clayton Lindner, assistant principal of West Rapids Elementary School, Independent School District 318, with the 2022 MESPA Division Leadership Achievement Award for MESPA’s Northeast Division.
“Students who complete the pathway are incredibly prepared for what comes next,” said Lindstrom. “They have been given a firm foundation that they can build on after school whether it be a CNA, technician, nurse, dentist or dietician.” This connection between businesses, students, and teachers is critical to the Next Career Pathways program. The next steps will be to continue building on these bonds, and to share that with the greater community.
This year ISD 318 will be participating in the 2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS). This survey is administered every three years to students in the following grade levels: 5th, 8th, 9th and 11th. The survey is anonymous and is conducted to gain insight into student experiences across the state.
At GRHS, students have many ways of earning college credits while completing the credits necessary for graduation. One of those programs is College in the Schools (CITS). The CITS Program lets students earn college credit while staying on campus.
At a School Board workshop on November 8, the ISD 318 School Board discussed options for reducing the levy and the tax impact on ISD 318 residents. “After reviewing the debt structures and the rest of our levy, the board felt that reducing the levy from the preliminary amounts made the most sense for the district and its constituents at this time,” said ISD 318 Superintendent Matt Grose.
