District leaders accompanied a team from Wold Architects and Engineers, the firm that designed the majority of the district’s construction projects made possible by the community’s support of the 2019 bond referendum, to present at the EDspaces “Designing the Future of Education” national conference. The annual event is described as the place where leaders and innovators unite to drive the future of learning environments, where technology, space and pedagogy converge.

Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) results were released this week. Overall, K-8 White Bear Lake Area Schools scores remain above statewide proficiency levels in reading, math and science

outdoor space

Recently, a popular topic of conversation has been the expanded indoor and outdoor spaces for student and community activities. The WBLAHS Field House, stadium and turf fields surrounding the current North Campus have seen practices and contests, along with community use when the spaces are not reserved for activities. The new courts on Bald Eagle Avenue, painted and lined for both tennis and pickleball, were completed in mid-August to be used for the fall sports season and available for community use.
