Schools Receive Early Christmas Present

Posted: Updated:

The Land Board awards nearly 10 million dollars to support schools and colleges in Western North Dakota.

The Board of University and School Lands awarded the money to K-12 schools and higher education institutions throughout oil impacted areas in the state.

The South Prairie Elementary School District in Ward County was one Minot school that was awarded some of those funds, $250,000 to put towards their portable classrooms.

"We've added two portables the last two years, a portable each year. By the time you get them moved in, set and housed with the needed supplies, technology, things like that, you're upwards of $200,000 each. For a $400,000 project, getting $250,000 back in oil impact money is just great for us to help offset those costs," says South Prairie Superintendent Wayne Stanley.

Minot State University also received one million dollars to enhance their campus security measures.
