Mankato Area Public School considering $110 million referendum

Mankato Area Public Schools is considering up to $110 million in new construction projects, which would need to be approved by voters in the November election.

On Tuesday night, the school board unanimously decided to seek a bond to help finance the projects.  State law requires the district to determine the maximum amount and make a list of the proposed projects.  The Minnesota Department of Education must approve the plan before the board can determine a final cost. 

Projects potentially include adding secure entrances to the schools, modernizing West High School, and making improvements to the new early learning center on Map Dr.
