Nevis hits trifecta of good school news
Park Rapids Minnesota PO Box 111 56470

"Great news" was the subject line in Nevis superintendent Steve Rassier's e-mail to school staff Tuesday morning.

And great news came in threes.

Nevis elementary has been named a Reward School by the Minnesota Department of Education based on the state's new accountability system.

The designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of Title I schools (schools receiving federal aid).

The district also received notification of a $500,000 grant for construction of an Early Childhood complex, to be built on the east end of the elementary.

And the school board approved the purchase of 50 iPads that will be distributed to staff. Teachers will be asked to gain familiarity with the hand-held computers over the summer. They will be issued to next year's sixth graders as a pilot project.
