Willmar, Minn., Schools to study facility needs in the fall


WILLMAR -- A facility study in the Willmar Public Schools will begin in early September and last through the fall.

The Willmar School Board this week discussed scheduling for the study.

The district conducted a similar study about six years ago, but the situation has changed since then.

Enrollment at that time was declining, and it has been increasing this school year. The bonds used to pay for the Willmar Senior High in the 1990s will be paid off in another year.
