SCHOOL BOARD INFORMATION

ABOUT THIS CALENDAR Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

About the School Board

We are looking foreward to a year of learning, growth, and innovation as we tackle new challenges.

School Board meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month with some adjustments due to holidays or other conflicts. All regularly scheduled meetings are held beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Farmington City Hall (430 3rd St, Farmington, MN 55024) or at Farmington High School, room 1201 (20655 Flagstaff Ave, Farmington, MN 55024).** Please see meeting notices for the specific time and location of each meeting. Meeting agendas, minutes, and videos may be found on on the Farmington Area Public Schools website under District 192 > School Board. Official records of School Board actions are available at the District Services Center located at Farmington High School. You may also submit questions or requests by calling the District Offices at (651) 463-5000 or sending an e-mail to Lori Jensen, ljensen@farmington.k12.mn.us.

In this calendar you will find important information such as our new school start times, non-school days, school and district contacts, and district policies. This calendar also includes ample space to write in school events as new ones are planned throughout the school year. If you have seen our calendar in the past, you might notice that some things are missing from this edition. As we begin a new school year in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic, it is difficult to set exact dates for many of our annual school events. The most up-to-date and accurate information can always be found on our website. Please visit www.farmington.k12.mn.us or scan the QR code below for our online calendar.
