St. Peter voters pass middle school referendum

Voters in the St. Peter School District passed a referendum Tuesday approving nearly $11 million in upgrades for the middle school.

Preliminary numbers show the vote passed 911-656.  The funds will be used to renovate classrooms, refurbish hallways and common areas, repair and replace windows, and redesign a stairwell.

After the district separately approved a new HVAC system for the school in December, the upgrades were proposed with the idea of doing both projects simultaneously.  A website created for the project, called has a calculator for voters to estimate the tax impact. 

The design planning and maintenance will begin at the end of the school year and be completed in the summers of 2025 and 2026 to avoid disrupting classes.
