Fergus Falls Public Schools

Bond Referendum

May 14, 2024

On May 14, 2024, the residents of Fergus Falls Public Schools, ISD 544, will decide whether to increase school funding to address identified facility needs within the district. The proposal before the voters is for a 102,000 sq.ft. elementary school to house grades three through five.


If approved, the new school would replace the aging McKinley and Adams facilities - both of which date back to 1939. Education has changed immensely since these two buildings were designed. They no longer meet the evolving educational requirements to foster an optimal teaching and learning environment.


By passing the building bond, we are not just investing in bricks and mortar; we are investing in the future of our students, providing them with state-of-the-art facilities that will enhance their educational experiences and contribute to their overall success. It is a proactive step towards maintaining our commitment to excellence, and it reinforces our commitment to delivering quality education to our community.
