Building Bond 2017

Addressing Our Facilities Challenges

On November 7, Roseville Area Schools is seeking voter approval of a bond referendum that, if approved by district residents, will
enable the district to address three key areas:

  • Growing student enrollment
  • Changing student and community needs
  • Aging buildings

Our school district is facing a problem. While many school districts in Minnesota are struggling with declining student enrollment, we are growing. Families want to raise their children in our communities — which is wonderful! But challenges presented by a lack of space, aging buildings, and outdated learning spaces will only get worse if nothing is done. It is critical that we have schools that help our teachers to meet the needs of today’s students.

Any effort to repair or expand our buildings must be cost-effective, community-driven, and long-range. With constructive input gathered over almost two years of work with industry experts, public meetings, and community surveys, the Roseville Area School Board has taken a balanced, cost-effective approach to addressing current and long-range facilities needs while remaining mindful of the financial impact on district residents.
