HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – Although all of Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted’s school board members say they’d like to improve the district, some take a different approach than others.
Open enrollment, for instance, was discussed in detail at the June 22 school board work session, with Board Member Charles Bush chiding staff for not conducting exit interviews when students leave the district.
In the 2013-14 school year, 294 students in the HLWW district opted to open enroll to other schools. The number of open enrollees peaked at 375 in 2005-06, and has been on a declining trend since then.
At the same time, more and more students from other districts are choosing to enroll at HLWW. In 1999-2000 there were 44 students, and in 2013-14 there were 102.
