Northeast Metro 916
2021-22 Annual Report
Northeast Metro 916 Intermediate School District responds to the unique needs of students, educators, and school districts with innovation, quality, and trusted experience.
50+ YEARS OF EXCELLENCE
On May 27, 1969, a bill was signed by Governor LeVander that enabled six school districts to form a new intermediate school district for vocational education and personnel, instructional, and administrative services. The district was named Special Intermediate School District 916, and the rest is history.

4,787 TOTAL STUDENTS
The number of students indicated in this report reflects a duplicated headcount, meaning that if a student unenrolls and re-enrolls during the same school year, they are counted twice. We represent the data this way because it more accurately represents the staff time, funding, and resources required to run our programs.
The total student count includes the programs listed below, 256 students for Extended School Year (ESY) and 441 students in our credit recovery programs. The student count for In Home Districts only counts Blind/Visually Impaired Services and Deaf/Hard of Hearing Services.

INVESTING IN STAFF
We have continued a partnership with the University of St. Thomas to offer a similar program for paraprofessionals and EAs who wish to pursue a master's degree and an Academic and Behavioral Strategist (ABS) teaching license with a focus on autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Intermediate districts operate on a fee-for-service basis. Revenue to fund student services is generated by state aid and tuition billing. Most district expenditures consist of salaries and benefits, which is 80% of the total district budget.
