The St. Cloud School Board, Superintendent and other administrative officials will be gathering starting December 3 for a retreat.  St. Cloud School Board Chairman Jeff Pollreis joins me on WJON today. He says they will discuss how they'd like to handle the renovations needed at Apollo High School.  Listen to our conversation below.

 

Jeff and I also discussed the need for safe entries in many of the schools in the district.  He says it is a priority but the money needs to be there.  The state backed off on the amount of money it was contribute to K-12 education in the early 2000s.  Jeff is hopeful that the state legislature could include increased funding for K-12 in the school district's bonding bill next year.
