WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The district encompassing rural schools around Williston is moving forward with plans to build a new school, despite voters twice rejecting the idea.

Voters in February rejected a proposed K-8 school, after last year turning down a proposed K-12 school.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/22rG747 ) that the District 8 School Board will dip into building fund revenues to finance a $16.9 million middle school. That doesn’t require taxpayer approval.

Ground could be broken in late summer, with construction estimated to take about a year.
