Robbinsdale Area Schools

5 district schools getting summertime facelifts

An important part of being good stewards of district tax dollars is to maintain the community’s investment in its schools.

That's why when you drive past one of five district schools this summer, you might see some work being done. From window replacement to roof repairs to HVAC upgrades, every summer Robbinsdale Area Schools invests in its buildings to make sure they’re welcoming environments and great places for learning.

The bulk of this work is part of the district’s Long-Term Facilities Maintenance (LTFM) plan, and funded through the district’s Building Construction Fund.
