The Board of Higher Education says a proposed Career Academy, which is to be built in Fargo by the State College of Science in Wahpeton, has not yet received Board approval.

NDSCS has partnered with the college’s foundation on the project. NDSCS President John Richman told the Board the Foundation would own the facility. He said plans have been drawn, land was purchased, and a virtual groundbreaking had been scheduled in May.

But Board member Kathy Neset said the Board only approved fundraising for the project, and that was back in 2017.

North Dakota schools receiving ESSER funding

Mar 22, 2021

North Dakota schools have received, or will be receiving, a separate pot of money from federal COVID relief funds.

It’s called “ESSER,” which stands for "Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief."

State school superintendent Kirsten Baesler said the schools received $33 million in April, 2020, and $135.9 million in December, 2020, and will receive $305.3 million under the new American Rescue Plan.
