GRAND FORKS — North Dakota’s government will begin picking up a larger percentage of the local education tabs starting Aug. 1. That’s because a new funding formula for K-12 education was passed by the Legislature at the close of session May 4 — resulting in $656 million in property tax relief for residents.
Dickinson Public Schools will be obligated to levy fewer mills in the upcoming tax year, meaning a smaller share of citizen tax bills will be going to DPS, but it also means the district will have a tighter budget than it originally planned for the 2013-14 school year.
FARGO — City, parks and school officials from both Fargo and West Fargo oppose two state House bills that would put a 3 percent limit on the total dollar increases in property taxes those entities could collect from one year to the next.
For the second time in three years, Dickinson Public Schools is withdrawing from Roughrider Education Services Program, citing unkept promises as the main reason for wanting to leave the regional education association.
Funding formulas can be difficult to understand and simplifying them can be a task, but that’s exactly what Dickinson Public Schools officials want with the formula used to increase teacher’s salaries, which currently tallies $14.1 million — and they want it to be fair.

A suspect who fled a North Dakota Highway Patrol traffic stop remained on the loose Wednesday evening and was believed to be in Dickinson. The incident led to the lockdown of Dickinson schools Wednesday afternoon as police searched for the suspect.
Hamid Shirvani, chancellor of the North Dakota University System, has proposed a major overhaul to the state’s higher education system – an overhaul that stands to affect nearly every future North Dakota college student.
