Education head coming to district

Dr. Brenda Casseilus, Minnesota’s commissioner of education, will visit the Elk River Area School District on Dec. 15 to speak and become familiar with issues facing the school district.

The public is invited to the presentation, hosted by the Legislative Action Team (LAT), starting at 7 p.m. at the Handke Center, 315 Main St., Elk River. One of Casseilus’ initiatives is to opt out of the federal No Child Left Behind Law (NCLB).
