We are a group of concerned and motivated citizens of the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District, dedicated to bringing student success and educational excellence back to the forefront.

We intend on holding school district officials and staff accountable.

Improving student proficiency in reading, writing, math and science.

We support the removal of controversial ideologies from our schools in a fiscally responsible manner.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the focus of education needs to be on skills and preparing students for success after high school.

Childhood education is for teaching children how to succeed in math, science, language, social studies and the arts.

Teaching morality and developing personal beliefs belongs in the home, not in the classroom.

Providing equal opportunity for individual success is a necessity for every child. Demanding accountability and responsibility for one’s actions is vital.

Lessons in failure and consequence are imperative to facing adversity in an adult world.

What We Know

District-wide test scores are declining and almost 50% of our students are non-proficient.

Student : teacher ratios and class sizes are increasing districtwide.

Fiscal responsibility is needed as district expenses are growing at a much higher rate than enrollment, even when accounting for inflation.

The safety and security of our most precious investments are being ignored.

  2. I believe the Lakers for Change is a vital group in helping parents hold school board members, teachers and administrators accountable. I think what is really missing in the education system right now is the fact that parents know what’s best for their kids, not teacher’s unions. Parents and local communities have always determined education policies in their communities. It is time for a return to that.
