School of Leadership for Public Service to open


The School of Leadership for Public Service, a free pubic charter school, recently announced that it will be opening in the Saint Columba school site in the fall of 2022. The School of Leadership will open initially for grades 6-10, then expand gradually until it is a preK to 12 school.
“The School of Leadership for Public Service intends to work with community mentors to help students understand how the skills they learn in class are used each day in work and in public service. The school will be teacher-run,” explain representatives. It is authorized by the Minnesota Guild, a successful charter school advisory group. One of the goals of the school is to create a community of communities by providing before and after school activities, along with evening and weekend functions.
“The school will go beyond the traditional 3R’s of reading, writing and arithmetic by adding the 3Cs – Care, Connect and Contribute,” explain representatives. “This will ensure that students have the skills needed to work successfully with others. “
The founders of the School of Leadership for Public Service are Sheriff Bob Fletcher, Donna Swanson and Roy Magnuson. Background information on the founders and the school’s board of education can be found at
