WATCH: Three of Brainerd Public Schools’ Elementary Projects Are Under Construction

Blueprint 181 is starting to take shape. After a successful referendum in the spring of 2018, Brainerd Public Schools broke ground on multiple projects this summer. This short video includes footage from groundbreaking celebrations, construction, and renderings of three elementary schools — Harrison, Nisswa, and Baxter — which are part of the district’s first wave of projects.

From relatively minor renovations to major reconstruction and new additions, 12 buildings in the district will be upgraded as part of the Blueprint 181 master plan. Stay tuned for more updates this fall. For more information visit
