Student Displacement Caused by Red River Flooding
April 06, 2009
The damage caused by the flooding in the Red River valley is devastating and has caused the displacement of people from their residences, jobs and the services they normally depend upon. I know that all North Dakotans are extending themselves to assist those who are displaced and I want to encourage all North Dakota school districts to accommodate displaced students arriving from other districts. It is possible that such arrangements will need to be continued from as little as a week or as long as through the end of the school year.
