Earlier this past month one school district has decided to limit their gym and health classes. The Elk River school board discussed cutting back on physical education and health classes required for graduating for more language and tech classes for grades K-12.
The Sartell-St. Stephen School District has settled its contract with the teachers' union. The settlement between the district and the Sartell Education Association covers the 2011-2013 contract years.
