Community approves Pelican Rapids
November 2013 Bond Referendum
1,426 – Yes
1,320 – No
Dear Pelican Rapids Community:
This is an exciting time for ISD 548!
We want to thank everyone that took the time to vote! We wanted to know what the public wanted in their school and this election will help us move forward with your wishes.
I am committed to helping all of us come together as a community. We recognize that many of you voted "No" and we will need to work harder than ever to listen to all community members in order to provide the best service to our children.There have been hard feelings on both sides of this issue and I hope that we can mend those fences.
A detailed time line of what is next will be developed and shared as soon as possible. The full design will take 6-7 months. This is a big project and will be completed over the course of several years.
This is exciting and something to look forward to. We will soon have facilities that the entire community can use and be proud of.
