Forest Lake schools taxpayers save $9 million on renovations

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported in its Oct. 17 print and online editions about the $9 million that will be saved by local school district taxpayers due to favorable interest rates associated with the school bond project, which was approved by voters in November of 2015. The favorable interest rates are due, in part, to the school district's high credit rating. Click here to see the online version of the article.

Strengthening a positive climate for learning

In a continuing effort to prevent bullying and quickly deal with any bullying that occurs, Forest Lake Area Schools has launched a new district-wide procedure for identifying and reporting bullying behavior. If families believe that their child, or a student they know, is being bullied, they are asked to fill out this Bullying Reporting Form. The form can be filled out online, but must be printed and signed before it is turned in at any school office in the district. Paper copies of the form are also available at each school building and the Community Education office.
