Bismarck plans industrial technology program | Education


During the January Bismarck School Board meeting, board members heard a presentation from the school principal, Abe Warren, on a possible industrial technology program in the district.

They would like to start offering classes in the 2021-2022 school year, Warren said, but it’s still in the preliminary process.

“We think it would be a great decision for our children and give them more opportunities,” he said.

At the meeting, the board also honored a few students and staff.

Thomas Woody was recognized as elementary student of the month and Courtney Bockenkamp as high school student of the month.

Karen Clark and Caroline Drake were honored as neighborhood elementary and secondary school staff, respectively.

In other cases, according to Superintendent Jason King, the board:

  • accepted the resignation of secondary counselor Mark Reeves at the end of this school year.
  • passed a resolution to extend COVID-19 emergency leave until March 31.
  • approved the annual audit
  • approved the Library Media Center reports and the resource standards report.
  • approved the PAT and preschool reports.
