WHITE SHIELD, N.D. (AP) - Students and teachers in White Shield are preparing to move into a new K-12 school on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
Construction of the building funded by the Three Affiliated Tribes began in 2015. It’s now awaiting inspection by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs.
High School Principal Stacey Blacksmith tells the Minot Daily News that officials hope to start having classes in the new school by the second week of November.
There are 147 students in White Shield. For years, some classes and offices have been located in outside modules. The old gymnasium was too small to accommodate crowds, so spectators sat on the stage or stood by the door.
No decision has been made one what will be done with the old school.
