The Minnewaukan Public School District No. 5 needed to relocate its school building because it was continuously threatened by the rising water levels of the adjacent Devils Lake in Minnewaukan, ND. The previous building also did not meet the school’s needs for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. More than 90 percent of students are members of either the Spirit Lake Tribe or the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.
Using NMTC financing from Travois and another CDE, the school district was able to complete construction on the building, and students will soon be making use of new classrooms, a cafeteria, gymnasium, computer lab, library, recreational areas and common spaces.
