Frequently Asked Questions

"The Minnesota State High School League came out with the enrollment numbers they use for classification for the next two years. Alexandria Area High School is on the bubble of being moved up a class in our activities. If we were to form a co-op, those numbers would likely push us over the threshold and force us to move up a class. Due to that fact, we are not interested in forming any new co-ops at this time."
