South Dakota Eyes Federal Money for School for Native Americans
South Dakota is applying for a federal grant from the Race to the Top Fund to help it build a residential school designed to improve academic achievement among American Indian students.
Under South Dakota's proposal, partners would establish a year-round residential school, likely in the Black Hills, for grades 9-12 and two years of postsecondary education.
The curriculum would focus on science, technology, engineering, and math to help provide future scientists and engineers.
