Minnesota Department of Education's Commissioner Review and Comment
Rochester Public Schools

A new Minnesota Statute passed in 2017 by the Legislature requires the School Board to hold a public meeting in advance of a proposed bond referendum. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss a summary of the Commissioner’s Response to the District’s Review & Comment submitted on August 19, 2019.

The Commissioner of Education responded on September 30, 2019 with a “positive” review and comment. This is the best feedback possible. The other two possible responses from the Commissioner could have been “negative” or “unfavorable.”

The District provided this information to the School Board at the October 1, 2019 School Board Meeting.
