February is Minnesota School Board Recognition Month. It’s a great time to recognize our elected community members who give their time and energy to serve on the Wayzata School Board. School Board members in Wayzata Public Schools are entrusted by this community with responsibility for an annual budget of nearly $255 million, more than 13,300 students, 1,500 employees and 15 schools.
Thirty students from Wayzata High School have now been named 2024 National Merit Scholar Finalists!
Congratulations to WPS teachers Courtney Gray-Kuschel, Shannon Kelly, Jeff Prondzinski and Kathryn Kottke for being selected as candidates for the 2024 Minnesota Teacher of the Year. The four teachers are among the list of 159 candidates in the running for 2024 Minnesota Teacher of the Year. In March, the panel will convene to choose a group of finalists.
