A Good Start to the P.L. School Year

The new school year starts with almost 30 students more than last year for the Pequot Lakes School District.  Superintendent Rick Linnell tells KLKS News, the additional kids, with the $50 per student increase from the legislature, helps their financial situation.

Linnell says the legislature has shifted about a million dollars meant for the school district to another year.  He tells KLKS News, that's why they have a reserve fund, and are OK for now.  He worries that some year state lawmakers will just decide cancel the back payments.

The Pequot Lakes School District is undergoing a two year remodeling project.  The elementary school in Breezy Point will see the additional space added this school year.  The  high school will get its face lift the following year.
