The St. Michael-Albertville School District is inviting residents to their 2022 legislative forum 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19, located at the auditorium of Discovery Elementary School 214 First Ave. NE, Buffalo. The forum will be on school funding.

St. Michael-Albertville schools is one of the lowest funded districts for per-pupil revenue in the state ranking 325 out of 327 in a recent study. The school is one of the lowest-ranked districts due to a state funding formula that gives more money to districts that the state deems “higher-need” or “poorer” districts.

Back in Dec. 8 the school district created a legislative action team. The Action Team’s goal is to change the legislation that causes the inequity. The team’s next meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 25, in the middle school west media center. If anyone wants to join the legislative action team they can sign up at the STMA district website.
