All of the meetings will be at the Willmar Education and Arts Center, 611 Fifth St. S.W.

At the facilities meeting, the board will hear updates from its architect about a tentative plan to add science classrooms and a fifth-grade wing at Willmar Middle School and to make improvements at other buildings to modernize the buildings and deal with issues of crowding.

During the board meeting, the board is expected to approve an agreement to have school resource officers from the Willmar Police Department serve in schools through the 2016-17 school year.

The board will also consider a list of personnel changes, mostly hires to replace employees who have retired or resigned.

Also Monday, members of the school district’s facilities task force will meet at 1:30 p.m. to talk about the possibility of building a field house next to Willmar Senior High. The task force discussed a field house when it discussed the district’s needs last year. That meeting is at WEAC, too.
