School Board

Teaching children throughout the district is truly a team effort.  We're fortunate to have some of the most experienced and educated teachers in Minnesota, along with dedicated staff, parents, and volunteers willing to help our children succeed now and into the future.  

As elected leaders, we welcome your input. Contact information for the school board is available on this webpage, along with agendas and meeting minutes.  Board meetings are regularly held the third Tuesday of the month at 5:15 PM in the Worthington High School Media Center, 1211 Clary Street.  The meetings are also televised on Cable TV Channel 3

Again, we'd enjoy hearing from you and we welcome your suggestions and input.
