"Hands down, this is the place that you want your kid to be." The May 14 referendum request would support the Eden Prairie pride showcased in this video. Learn more at . EP Residents can vote early now until May 13 at the Administrative Services Center.
Here’s a question we’ve heard recently:   Why are there so many changes proposed at Central Middle School?

Answer:   While all district schools would receive valuable security improvements and redesigned classrooms to support more flexible learning environments, Central Middle School (CMS) would have more extensive work done if the referendum is approved. Moving 6th grade students to Central Middle School with their 7th and 8th grade peers would allow the district to make significant updates to the school, which was built in 1959 and had its last major update in 1994 (a time when many people were learning how use email). To learn more about the proposed updates at CMS,  a visual FAQ  has been posted to our referendum website. Or sign up for a  half-hour tour of CMS  next week  ( Tues., May 7, 5:30 p.m. and Sat., May 11, 10 a.m.) – spots are going fast!
