State funding shift a concern for Park Rapids District

Email News Alerts

"The district continues to be in the banking business," Park Rapids school superintendent Glenn Chiodo told the board this week.

He is referring to the budget agreement between Republican leadership and Governor Mark Dayton that's calling for a 60-40 funding shift to the state's K-12 schools.


The proposed bill would require a $700 million shift in school funding.

"And there's no plans to pay us back," Chiodo said. "That's the scary part."
