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.

About Us

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.

Get the Word Out

Share this group and its mission with others in the community. Changing the trajectory of our local school district impacts not only the students in our schools but also the community it represents and all that live here. Every voice matters.


What We Know

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

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

Student : teacher ratios and class sizes are increasing districtwide.

District spending has put us into a deficit and yet they ask for more.

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