Owatonna High School: Let's Write the Next Chapter

We are committed to working with our community—that means you—to help us write the next chapter for the current high school campus. In November 2019, our community generously supported two bond referendum questions. Question 1 allocated $104M toward the construction of a new high school building; Question 2 allocated $8M toward repurposing the current high school campus for school district and/or community needs.

As the School District moves forward, we need your help to decide how the current Owatonna High School property will be used and supported by our community members to satisfy the passing of question 2 referenced above. We want to hear what you think, so we're putting out a call for 'Ideas'.

The process starts with collecting your ideas, prioritizing, and eventually providing information collected to help inform efforts of a newly commissioned community member task force to be established in Fall 2021. This team will help examine and recommend the best use of the property leading to the final project scope in December of 2021.

Any questions? If they are regarding plans for the existing high school, please direct your question to 'Ask the Superintendent' below.

We hear you and value your input! #OwatonnaProud


Thank you for your Idea submissions. Keep them coming! We are in the Ideation stage through July 2021. (See the Planning Schedule at the right for more information.)
