School Dance Changes

The Roseau School Board voted at their 9/15/16 meeting to allow a change in School Board Policy that would permit 9th grade students to attend the Homecoming and Winter Semi-Formal dance with the Senior High students.  This change reflects the policy of other school districts with a 9-12 Senior High building similar to Roseau.  The Roseau Student Council brought the issue to the attention of the School Board as a matter of interest to the student body.  Student Council voted unanimously to approve the change, stating that they felt it would increast dance attendance.  Furthermore, the 9th grade students are considered Senior High students in the way they earn credits and pay activity fees.
