Families – You can help generate state aid for your school by completing the Application for Educational Benefits and returning it to your school. You can now fill this application out online through the Parent Portal or print off a copy here and bring into the school office.

Some schools collect income data through a web-based collection system which replaces the paper forms. These are household income statements; only one application is needed per household but each district or charter school in which students in the household are enrolled would need a copy.

Students in households that meet the free or reduced price meal income guidelines will generate compensatory revenue for their school. Schools must use compensatory revenue to meet the needs of students who are behind their peers, such as remedial instruction, instructional materials including digital learning and technology, bilingual programs and additional teachers and teacher aides. These applications may also make teachers in your school eligible for the federal Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program if they have outstanding college loans. However, the household must complete and return the forms, or complete the online form, no later than December 15 so the school can calculate eligibility and report to MDE. This will not impact your students’ eligibility to receive free meals during the 2020-21 school year.

To get enrolled in Parent Portal please contact Jill Boen at jboen@isd166.org. Any questions on the Educational Benefits application please contact Pam Puskala at ppuskala@isd166.org

Congratulations to the JV Knowledge Bowl Team (Kyler Hansen, Bryn Fitzgerald-Wells, Paul Dorr, Declan Gergets, Grace Ritchey, Andrew Hallberg) for taking home the 2020 Northeast Cooperative JV Knowledge Bowl Championship today!

They scored 92 points, and the next closest team was at 67.5 points; in Knowledge Bowl that's a huge margin. They took home first place in the fall season, beating arch-nemesis International Falls along with Virginia, Chisholm, Nashwauk-Keewatin, Cromwell-Wright and Northeast Range!

It's called "JV," because it's only open to 9th and 10th graders, but these kids will all do very well at the "Varsity" level meets in the winter/spring that is open to students in grades 9-12.
