The District 206 Activities Department will host leading sports psychology consultant and peak performance coach Dr. Greg Dale in an exclusive workshop for Alexandria student athletes, coaches and parents on August 13.
Around the state, 23 schools were selected to receive the Minnesota Academic Excellence Foundation’s (MAEF) 2008 “School Spotlight Award.”
Last week, the foundation announced that a school in Alexandria School District 206 received the award.
Alexandria School District 206 has a big order to fill. It needs to come up with ways to deal with budget shortfalls while continuing its offering of top-notch academic programs, maintaining quality facilities and buses, offering a variety of extra curricular programs, and so on.
Emotions were in full swing at Monday night’s regular Alexandria School District 206 board meeting.
The topic that got the pot stirring was the proposed plan for the new elementary attendance boundaries.
Ten chairs were left open for residents of Alexandria School District 206 at the district’s annual Truth in Taxation hearing Tuesday night.
Although most of the chairs were filled, only three were taken by residents wishing to make comments – one by Alexandria Mayor Dan Ness; one by a young man who recently purchased a house for his family and wanted information about how his taxes were figured; and the other by an elderly woman who has a summer home on Lake L’Homme Dieu.
Out of hundreds of school districts across the nation, Alexandria was recently recognized for its students’ achievements.
Alexandria School District 206 was presented with the Growth Achievement Award from Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) – one of 11 awards handed out nationwide.
The start of the 2009-2010 school year in Alexandria will be full of changes – a new elementary school, new students, new teachers and new rules for where students will be attending school.
Nearly two years ago, Alexandria School District 206 began studying its elementary attendance boundaries. After all the studying and gathering of information, a new plan will soon come to fruition.
