STMA Legislative Action

Similar children in similar school districts throughout Minnesota receive vastly different sums of per pupil revenue based on where their parents choose to live.

STMA ranks 326 out of 330 Minnesota school districts in general education revenue per pupil. STMA receives $1,045 less in total revenue per pupil compared to the state average. Our state’s current policy for funding public education is grossly inequitable, irrational, and inexplicable.

Watch the video to learn more and see how you can help to ensure that all Minnesota students have the same educational opportunities.

The School Board and district administration thank the students and staff who participated in editing and putting together the video.

The Blue B team lost by seven points and the A team swept their rivals on the season- winning 38-31. A couple highlights were: Will M. knocking down a shot in a time when the team was looking for a score, and T.J. D. crossing his way over to the hoop and scoring 9 in the game. Austin H. played a strong game on his way to a double double (10 pts., 10 rebs.), Trey F. notched 9, and Jackson T. scored 5.
