2017 Legislative Platform for Robbinsdale Area Schools

The Election Is Over...
        the Results Are In 

When the 90th State Legislature convenes on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 
there will be 23 new legislative members. Republicans enlarged their 
control of the Minnesota House of Representatives and gained control of 
the Minnesota Senate for the first time since 2011-12. 

The Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) is looking forward to working with each of our newly elected School Board Members and State Legislators. 
We are grateful to all the candidates who ran for elected offices for their commitment and willingness to serve our community.

School Board Members Re-Elected
Congratulations to Helen Bassett, Sherry Tyrrell and John Vento for their
re-election to the Robbinsdale Area School Board!
