Welcome to School Year 2016-2017!
I am VERY excited and honored to serve as the Superintendent of Schools at ISD 181. Brainerd Public Schools enjoy a rich and strong tradition as a dynamic, forward-thinking and highly respected in Minnesota's educational system.
As we begin this school year, we have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of nearly 6,500 students, grades PreK-12. The school district encourages your participation and values your input as we strive to create the best learning environment for all students. Research confirms, when community, business partnerships, home and school district collaborate, our student achievement is strengthened.
Together and in partnership with the community, we will build on the district's proud past to sustain a promising future for all learners. Thank you for all you do to support our students in their educational journey. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the appropriate building principal or me at 218-454-6911. I extend my sincere best wishes for a positive, productive and promising school year!
