School districts rely on state and local funding to support and maintain their schools. On November 5, 2019, Fridley Public Schools will ask its community to approve an operational referendum. Funds from operational levies are used to support academic programs for students, staffing and student support services such as social emotional learning and mental health services.
Fridley Public Schools would like to thank Passion Church for its $5,000 donation to the Fridley Nutritional Services department. These funds will be used to pay off outstanding lunch balances for families whose children's lunch accounts have accrued debt.
Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel welcomed over 400 educators back for the 2019-20 school year at the annual Opening Workshop on August 26, 2019. The district recognized several employees including the Teachers of Excellence, 25 Years of Service recipients and Employee of the Year.
