Oil Boom Offsets Federal Aid Cuts For Some Schools

Oil Boom Offsets Federal Aid Cuts For Some Schools

Some North Dakota schools that depend on federal funds are faring better than those nationwide as effects from the state's oil boom has helped offset decreases in recent years.

Schools with large amounts of tax-exempt federal land like Native American reservations and military bases have received less Federal Impact Aid Money, forcing them to make difficult cuts. But thanks to the state's oil boom, some federally impacted schools in North Dakota are staying level, and a few, like New Town, are thriving.

State funding to schools has grown since the oil boom and officials say it has helped the federal cuts hurt less, but there are still struggling schools in the state. Dunseith Public Schools will move to a four-day schedule next year to help save money.
