At the regular February meeting of the Caledonia Area School Board, superintendent Ben Barton, MS/HS principal Mary Morem and elementary principal Gina Meinertz presented data on the World’s Best workforce report.

The data showed Caledonia still has room to grow towards the goal of 100 percent efficiency, but the district is doing very well as it relates to area schools.

“I like to compare us to the schools around us,” said superintendent Ben Barton. “And if you look at that we’re performing very well.”

The district also performs well when compared to state averages.
