Over the course of several months, the Frazee-Vergas School Leadership and Community Task Force identified several facility-related improvements necessary to address safety and security, traffic flow, adequate program space, and deferred maintenance needs to provide quality education for life-long learning for the students of Frazee-Vergas Public Schools.
At a special board meeting in August 2018, the school board approved moving forward with a three-question ballot referendum at the November 6th election to address these needs. Following the mixed results of the November 2018 referendum, the District received feedback from the community and moved forward with a modified plan that focuses on the most critical needs within our facilities.
