Dr. Dave Lund, the principal at Prior Lake High School, was none too pleased. A number of the people attending a recent Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board meeting held signs the educator felt were up in his business.
“Get those signs out of my face,” spouted Lund, according to two people who were in attendance.
Although nobody was violating his personal space, Lund had good reason to be salty.
At a time when increased scrutiny of the district’s generous contract with Nexus Solutions casts school officials and staff in a dubious light, the district is trying mightily to present a unified defense.
Nexus — a one-stop construction services shop specializing in consulting, planning, and building –has thus far collected close to $9 million in fees and bonuses while overseeing about $35 million worth of various upgrades and renovations in the district.
