BASB to Consolidate the District

The Bemidji Area School Board voted unanimously to move forward with restructuring and altering the use of some of the district’s school buildings to maintain their budget. The recommendations that were made included moving students from Central Elementary to other neighborhood schools, moving current Pre-K students at the Paul Bunyan Early Learning Center to K-3 neighborhood schools, and to vacate the current ISD 31 community education office building.
