Salma Jelle, 6, gasps when first seeing the bus that took her and about 30 families to the Crayola Experience at the Mall of America on an Early Childhood Education Program trip in March. The Willmar School District said no programs will be cut when the district again establishes an independent community education department this fall. The city of Willmar will again take over its own recreation activities.

In the next school year, Willmar Public Schools expects its high school programs to be labeled as needing academic support. The Minnesota Department of Education will designate high schools with a four-year graduation rate less than 67 percent for all students or for any student group, and Willmar has groups under that mark.

Among the remodeling projects yet to be completed within the Willmar School District are improvements at Roosevelt Elementary. The outdated media center will be redone, with new paint, carpeting and movable furniture. A wall in the middle of the school office will be taken out to provide more efficient space, and a wall will be removed between two classrooms to create a collaborative space, similar to collaborative learning areas at the new Lakeland Elementary building.
