Anoka-Hennepin to host community meetings to inform voters of Referendum 2021
Residents of Anoka-Hennepin will have the opportunity to weigh in on three questions on or before Nov. 2. The district will host community events at five locations in the school district this fall to ensure residents are informed about the impact for schools and students in the community. All events will be held from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at the following locations:
Sept. 21: Blaine High School
Sept. 22: Champlin Park High School
Sept. 23: Anoka High School
Sept. 28: Andover High School
Sept. 29: Coon Rapids High School
The information sessions will be structured with an open house style format that begins with a presentation from Superintendent Law at 6:30 p.m. followed by the opportunity for residents to view informational displays and ask questions of staff members. Attendees will have the opportunity to record questions on computer kiosks so they can be answered accurately and can also be included in the Q and A on the district website for other residents to view.
If approved, the referendum would provide funds for Anoka-Hennepin to maintain stability in schools by continuing to adequately staff schools and classrooms to address and improve class size; focus on success for students by maintaining technology tools and program opportunities; and support students by maintaining and improving mental health services along with social-emotional and academic resources.
