Willmar School Board to meet Monday, Feb. 3

The Willmar School Board will take another step toward a project to build an expansion at Willmar Middle School.


WILLMAR — The Willmar School Board will meet at 4:30 p.m. Monday in the boardroom at the Willmar Education and Arts Center.

The board plans to consider a lease agreement with the Southwest West Central Service Cooperative to build an expansion of Willmar Middle School. The project would build a new gym and new classrooms for the Middle School. A portion of the facility will be built for the SWWC to provide appropriate space for high-need special education students. The cooperative would lease its space from the district.

The board allows comments from the public twice during the meeting — at the beginning regarding items on the agenda and at the end for items not related to the agenda.
