Brainerd Public Schools has undergone a great deal of change over the past several years. Following the successful passing of their $205 million bond referendum in 2018, they have made drastic improvements to the district, including seven new and renovated elementary schools and learning centers and a new aquatic and athletics complex at Brainerd High School.
After many years of hard work, Brainerd Public Schools came together with students, staff, and the community to dedicate completed projects at Lowell, Nisswa, Harrison, Riverside, Baxter, and Garfield Elementaries, Warrior Early Learning Center, and the BHS Aquatic and Athletics Complex. These historic celebrations included ribbon cuttings, the unveiling of plaques for each building, speeches, and performances from students. “Remodeling a building is never easy, and it’s almost always inconvenient, but in the end, it’s always great to see a project come together,” said ICS Project Director Damien Williams.
These new and renovated facilities will provide opportunity, innovation, and success for Brainerd students now and into the future. “Our community’s partnership and investment in our children and our future continue to amaze and inspire me,” said Superintendent Laine Larson. “It’s been exhilarating for Brainerd Public Schools.”
