Westonka School 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.
April 6 Board Meeting Update
Due to the declared health pandemic and the declared state of emergency, and pursuant to Minnesota Statute 13D.021, the April 6 Westonka school board meeting will be held electronically. The agenda for the evening will be abbreviated to cover only actionable items and school board members will join the meeting from remote locations.

Questions or Concerns?
Before appealing to the school board with an issue or problem, citizens are urged to contact the teacher, then the building principal, then the Superintendent of Schools in order to reach a successful closure to an individual issue. If these procedures are unsuccessful, then arrangements will be made for the concerned party to formally address the school board.
Please call the board secretary at (952) 491-8007 to be placed on the agenda. Correspondence to board members may be sent to individual members or the board as a whole in care of the Superintendent of Schools, 5901 Sunnyfield Road East, Minnetrista, MN 55364.
