After more than six years of preparation, 300+ information-gathering sessions, a generous vote of support from our awesome community, and thousands of planning hours, seven beautiful Blueprint181 elementary and early childhood school buildings and the Brainerd High School Aquatic Center are complete!

On behalf of the ISD 181 Board of Education, we are ready to celebrate this monumental time in our school district’s history by dedicating these facilities with you!
