MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The Minot Public School District is applying for a $2 million energy impact grant from the state that could help pay for more cameras and other safety and security improvements at its schools.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1TtkMnS ) that the district has doubled the number of surveillance cameras at its two high school campuses in the past few years, but officials want to add even more.

Superintendent Mark Vollmer says the grant could be a big boost for the district.

Minot’s school board gave Business Manager Scott Moum approval to apply for the grant at its meeting on Friday.

In April, district voters approved a $39.5 million bond issue for new school construction, and about $5 million was set aside to pay for school safety improvements.
