The park district received money from the will of the Minot High Alum. It was his wish to give half to the school district and half to the park district. It was a private gift from one man to both the park and school district. Please read that carefully.

Why does state not do it? Against rules?

The state has not given money for building schools. I don't think ever but not sure. Would be nice as school districts wouldn't have to run bond issues - which are not fun. to say the least - for anyone.

Fema paid for 90% of it - the replacement figure of the old Ramstad. The school district received a loan to build it bigger than the old one and to pay for the land as Fema wouldn't pay to move the new school out of the flood plain. The city -county - state governments did not help with the building of the school. The grounds are being paid for by a half million donation from a Minot High Alum - class of 48. He passed away and left a million dollars that was divided by the school district and the park district. Quite a lovely gift.

I drove by it the other day, it was sweet. How was it bought? FEMA and state/county?
