School Board now to decide the next steps in determining facilities needs


WILLMAR — It’s up to the Willmar School Board now to decide the next step in an effort to improve its school facilities.

At its Monday meeting, the board received the recommendations of a task force that recommended building a new middle school next door to Willmar Senior High.

The board also welcomed new member Laura Warne on Monday. She was appointed to complete the term of Dan Croonquist who resigned late last year.
