Task force to push for new school middle school building


WILLMAR — A task force studying the Willmar School District’s facilities will recommend building a new middle school near the district’s high school.

The task force’s final recommendation will be delivered to the Willmar School Board at its Jan. 13 meeting.

A second minority recommendation will also be included. That will lay out a plan for building a new school for early childhood programs through grade 2.
