WASHINGTON - The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction will get $250,000 in federal funding to help school districts develop and implement high-quality school emergency operations plans. The funds authorized by the U.S. Department of Education will be used to provide training and technical assistance as North Dakota school districts incorporate emergency plans. The new plans will help school districts better coordinate and communicate with first responders and keep our schools safer by preventing, protecting against, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from emergency situations, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said in a statement on Friday. “To make sure our students are successful, they need to have a safe and encouraging environment to grow and learn, and investments like these funds are essential to give our students the best possible chance to succeed,” Heitkamp said.
