Taking On The Challenges Of Education 
The issues facing public education today are not limited to the borders of Le Sueur-Henderson. 

The concerns we wrestle with are affecting school districts throughout the country. No matter what the challenge, however, we must continue to stay focused on our top priority of providing the best possible educational experience for each of our students. 

Financial challenges for both our schools and individual families, increasingly diverse societal beliefs and how we reduce the achievement gap using a 21stt century educational approach in a traditional educational system are near the top of the list.

Funding for public education has always been challenging and will continue to be so. The key is to use the resources we have in the best possible way. We are constantly evaluating how available funds are used and determining if programs are supporting the mission and goals of the district. 

Programs that are not supporting our mission and goals must be phased out in favor of offerings that meet our evolving needs.

To address financial challenges, exploring alternative resources and partnerships is a strategy we have used at LS-H with great success. 

During the past four years, we have collaborated with the city, neighboring school districts, local businesses, and Minnesota State – Mankato University. 

These partnerships allow us to provide services and opportunities at a higher level than we would otherwise be able to provide. As a bonus benefit, the streamlined services have not only saved costs, but they have enhanced the level and variety of services we are providing. 

Additionally, we are building strong community and business relationships that are opening doors to new and expanded partnerships.
