Willmar, Minn., School District weighing up how it does business


WILLMAR — The Willmar School District needs more faculty and administrators from minority groups, according to the people at a community meeting to discuss a new strategic plan for the district.

About 30 people attended the hearing in the rehearsal hall of the Willmar Education and Arts Center Wednesday evening. The group was culturally diverse, with strong representation from Willmar’s Latino and Somali communities. The group included many parents and some school staff members.
