New Elementary School Recommended for Wayzata by Task Force
A community task force assembled by Wayzata schools is recommending the construction of a new elementary school to accommodate growth.
According to the Sun Sailor, parents on the 25-member Growth Task Force presented the proposal to the Wayzata School Board at a special work session on Jan. 30.
The task force was created to review student enrollment, as well as housing trends and demographic data before providing advice to the school board on how to plan for anticipated growth at the elementary level.
According to the task force, the district expects approximately another 1,000 K-12 students by 2019 if current housing trends continue, which is why they recommended the new elementary school.
The school board is expected to discuss the recommendation and determine what comes next at the it’s meeting on Feb. 13.
