: In our ongoing efforts to make the Minnesota Department of Education website more consistent, School Finance spreadsheets and reports that are run on an annual or ongoing basis are being relocated to the Data Center. School Construction reports will remain in both places (in this section and in the Data Center) until June 30, 2012, at which time they will only be available on the Data Center site. This page will remain up for non-recurring reports and other information related to this topic. Visit the Data Center now to find School Finance spreadsheets and reports.
