Welcome to Northwest Suburban Integration School District
400 Students Attend Student Leadership Conference – "Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow"

Northwest Suburban Integration School District hosted their 6th annual Student Leadership Conference on Friday, May 13, 2016, at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park.  This annual conference unites a diverse group of high school students from across the NWSISD consortium. 

Well renowned comedian, actor, and radio personality, Shed G, was this years keynote speaker.  Known for his clean, faith-based comedy, Shed brought his inspiration, wit, and comedy to the conference and also shared his life story with the students.  Wanting to be better then "what I was growing up," Shed broke barriers and succeeded where others thought he couldn't.  Shed overcame obstacles of having to start over many times in his college and professional career.  But told the students to "clear your mind and have a good mindset on what you want to achieve.  Believe in yourself and do NOT let yourself down!"

Students had the opportunity to participate in workshops, competitions, and a college and career fair.  Through these interactive events and competitions, the conference supports efforts to help close opportunity gaps by providing a culminating experience to practice college and career readiness skills with professionals from all over the Twin Cities and beyond.

This years conference was also streamed live via the Twin Cities Radio Network.


Elk River Mayor Dietz meets with seventeen Salk Middle School students to discuss city issues
The scene in the conference room at Salk Middle School resembled a typical city committee meeting with Mayor Dietz at the head of the table giving reports from city staff and asking questions of the group. The only difference is that the mayor wasn’t meeting with city council members, city staff, or local business leaders­­he was meeting with 17 Salk students in seventh grade who had written him letters airing their concerns about city affairs.
