MOORHEAD HIGH SCHOOL

TRANSFORMATION PROJECT

Construction on the new Moorhead High School facility began in the Spring of 2021. This multi-year project is being built on the current site of Moorhead High School. The two phase construction project is part of the district’s vision to transform the 9-12 experience which began with the opening of MHS career academy in the fall of 2021. For frequent updates on the construction progress visit www.isd152.org/construction or follow us on social media @MoorheadSchools.

Phase One

The first phase includes the commons, academic wings, pool and gym. Staff and students will move into this part of the building sometime during the 2023-24 school year. Then the old high school will be demolished and phase two construction will begin.

• The new high school is close to 400,000 square feet, over 60,000 square feet larger than the old school.

• Large windows cover the exterior, allowing natural light to seep into every space in the building.

• The academic wings feature mini commons to allow students study space in a smaller setting, group work rooms and a Spud study room where students can sign up to work on homework with teachers.

• The gym has two levels with a three lane track on the second level and standing room for spectators to watch from above. Bleachers pull out to the main court with seating for 3,000 people.

Financial aid is not available through the district.

This 30-hour class prepares students for their instructional permit. Steps for people under 18 years of age to get a Minnesota driver's license:

1. Complete mandatory 30 hours of scheduled classroom instruction. Students cannot be absent or tardy when attending this course. A 90-minute parent component will be scheduled for this class in compliance with Minnesota law. If the parent class is taken then the practice driving hours are reduced from 50 hours to 40.

2. Register for behind-the-wheel training, with a private vendor and receive the blue card. The blue card is issued by the vendor providing the behindthe-wheel instruction and is required to take the state permit test.

3. Take and pass the state permit test. Students registering for the permit test must provide: one primary ID, one secondary ID and the blue card. Primary ID options: state issued ID, current passport or state certified birth certificate. Secondary ID options: Social Security card, student ID with picture and ID number, or certified school transcript. Upon passing the permit test, making payment, and parent/guardian signature, students receive their permit.

4. Complete behind-the-wheel training. Students must have a permit before they can start behindthe-wheel instruction.

5. Complete the six-month practice period. Minnesota law now requires drivers to have a permit for six months before taking the road test. Every driver under the age of 18 who completes behind-the-wheel instruction and is testing for a provisional driver’s license must submit a driving log.

6. Pass road test. To take the road test, students must be 16 years old and have had their permit for six months. Drive on provisional license until qualifications for full license are met.

You must complete all 30 hours of scheduled class to be able to get your permit. If the 30 hours are not completed you will have to register and pay full price for the class again. No absences or tardies allowed. Please note location at registration. Students must attend all 30 hours in person.
