Words from Our Superintendent Ron Bratlie:


I’m very excited to serve the Rothsay School District.  ISD #850 has a tradition of excellence and boasts strong state test scores, character and mindset education.  The teachers, staff, and administration work hard to provide high quality educational opportunities for all students within a supportive environment.  Working together, we will build upon the strengths of the district and continually improve the ability of the district to educate all students and prepare them for the 21st Century work force.

In addition to a solid academic curriculum, students can pursue their individual interests through a complement of elective courses as well as participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities.  Rothsay School District provides Pre-School opportunities including a 4 year old program and child care as young as infants at a nominal cost.

In order for all children to be successful in attaining their potential, we believe a strong relationship needs to be fostered between the home and school.  We encourage all parents and community members to take an active role in the school.  We hope this website will be an effective tool in fostering a strong parental/community relationship with the school.

I welcome your comments, concerns and suggestions.  I look forward to working with you and serving the Rothsay community.  My contact information is:, office 218-867-2903, mobile 763-360-2539.



Ron Bratlie, Ed.D.
