Westonka School Board

  • 2022-2023 Board

    The school board is the governing body of the school district, and the seven board members are local citizens elected to four-year terms. Members are required to comply with laws and regulations enacted by the Minnesota Legislature and the Minnesota Department of Education. The board approves budgets, hires staff, provides facilities, establishes curriculum, determines policy, and generally provides for the educational needs of Westonka students.


  • Westonka Public Schools Facilities Review

    Following over a year of research, a demographic study of the school district, a community survey and staff focus groups, the Westonka School Board Facilities Committee has identified three priorities with regard to facilities improvements: 

    1. districtwide security enhancements to incorporate best practice safety standards; 
    2. districtwide deferred maintenance improvements; 
    3. and a redesign of Mound Westonka High School to enhance the learning environment and improve functionality, safety and pride.

    On March 14, 2023, Westonka Superintendent Kevin Borg held a community presentation and discussion of the committee’s prioritized facilities needs. A video of the presentation is posted online: 2023 Facilities Review.

    The Westonka School Board Facilities Committee would like to provide an opportunity for everyone to share their input on the scope of the identified priorities. The goal is to ensure the district’s direction with regard to future facility improvements aligns with that of Westonka parents, staff and community members. After watching the presentation, if you have thoughts, ideas or questions about the facilities review process, please send them directly to Superintendent Borg at borgk@westonka.k12.mn.us or (952) 491-8001.

  • Westonka School Board Votes to Appoint Brian Roath as Interim Board Member

    March 14, 2023 — At the regular meeting March 13, the Westonka School Board voted to appoint community member Brian Roath to fill a vacancy on the board from May through the end of this calendar year.

    The school board vacancy was the result of the retirement of long-time school board member Dave Botts in January. By state law, the school board was required to appoint an interim board member to serve the remainder of Botts’ term of office, which ends Jan. 1, 2024. 

    Roath is scheduled to be seated at the May 1, 2023 Westonka School Board meeting, with the interim term ending Jan. 1, 2024. He can choose whether or not to run for a full four-year term in the fall. 

    This November, Westonka residents will elect four school board members to four-year terms. Filing for school board will be open Aug. 1-15, 2023, and the general election will be held Nov. 7, 2023.
