Dear Northfield School District Families:
I am grateful for the support our voters continue to provide our district. As a community, we have long been recognized for our commitment to education and to the youth we serve. This is clearly reflected in your decisions at the polls on Tuesday. I am pleased to share that both capital projects levy questions passed. Question 1 passed by a margin of 68.81%—31.19%. Question 2 passed by a margin of 58.34%-41.66%. This means that our students will continue to benefit from having the resources necessary to maximize their learning opportunities in Northfield.
I am also sharing the results of the school board election. Jenny Nelson, Ben Miller, and incumbent Jeff Quinnell won the election and will serve a four-year term beginning in January. I look forward to continuing a close working partnership with our board. I want to thank Robert Coleman, Ricky Livingston, and incumbent Tom Baraniak for stepping forward to run for the board. It is vital to have a quality pool of candidates that are willing to serve.
You can see the results on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website.
Once again, thank you for your ongoing support, and congratulations to the board members who will begin serving their new terms in January. On behalf of the entire school district, we appreciate your trust in us.
Matt Hillmann, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
