St. Paul schools ask to run Crosswinds next year

Anthony Lonetree’s article in the Star Tribune today, “St. Paul school board agrees to pursue lease to run Crosswinds School in Woodbury,” share the news that:

On Tuesday, the St. Paul school board agreed to pursue a lease with the state allowing the district to run the Crosswinds Arts and Science School for at least a year.

By promoting the integration of students in St. Paul and its suburbs, Crosswinds continues to be of value to the east metro, said John Brodrick, a St. Paul school board member who was an appointee to the EMID board in 2013. “St. Paul’s had skin in this game for many, many years,” he said.

The district also appears to be the only hope for Crosswinds to stay alive in 2017-18.

Know hope.
