St. Cloud State University (MIDDLE SCHOOL) Visit
Welcome to the College Kick-Start! Northwest Suburban Integration School District #6078 (NWSISD) is comprised of seven independent school districts which include Anoka-Hennepin Schools, Brooklyn Center Community Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, ISD 728, Fridley Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools and Rockford Area Schools. As a collaborative, NWSISD has worked with the member districts around the common goal of post-secondary preparedness and success. Each year, member district students from schools (elementary to high school) are provided the opportunity to research potential schools by participating in college visits. The College Kick-Start is a series of NWSISD sponsored elementary/middle school college experiences. These experiences provide opportunities for students to begin exploring a career and/or college pathway that aligns with their current interests. We believe that it is never too early to start visualizing and planning for the future. Visits listed are for elementary and middle school students only. All visits are first come, first served. Please limit your groups to 20 participants for each visit. Please generate your own permission slips according to your building guidelines. Groups signing up to attend visits must provide chaperones and organize transportation for their group. A ratio of one chaperone to every ten students is recommended. If more than one district attends a college visit, fees paid for transportation may be reimbursed by the Minnesota Department of Education. You will need to fill out the “Transportation to Interdistrict Desegregation or Integration Schools or Programs” form to receive reimbursement. In order to register your students for any of the college/career visits, you will need to complete the ONLINE REGISTRATION. Spaces will not be guaranteed until this form is received and completed. Phone call or email RSVPs will not be accepted. Completed student lists (listing names, grades, and racial identification for your students) are due two weeks prior to the scheduled visit. Due to the number of cancellations in the past, we will be firm on the two week deadline. If completed lists are not received two weeks prior to a requested visit, spaces will be given to groups on the waiting list. Feel free to contact me via email or by phone at 763-450-1331 should you have questions. College/Career visits paid for by district membership fees.
