The following questions were requested from the Robbinsdale Area School Board and administration on December 1, 2011.  A bullet point outline or skeleton answers were requested;

1. A list or bullet points comparing STEAM Magnet school vs. other RAS elementary schools, as to what is going to be the difference of materials taught?
2. How long until full curriculum will be determined?
3. Will the STEAM curriculum be reviewed by the Systems Accountability Committee?
4. What is the extra $2,000,000+ cost going to get in student achievement and opportunity gap closure across all students, not just 400-500?
5. How is the lottery going to be structured to achieve balance of economic and social mix to look like other elementary schools within District?  What is the outline of the plan?
6. Is RAS starting from scratch in creating this magnet school or using existing model(s) already proven in other school districts?  Where are these districts and the proven results for the community to review?

Because for no answers to the above questions, we are making them public for the community to determine if they believe that it is important to have at least an outline answer to each of these questions? Please let us, the School Board and administration know if you want these and other questions answered?
