RE: Approval of District Distance Learning Plans

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced schools to close for an undetermined amount of time. In an executive order, Governor Burgum has directed school districts to develop plans for age-appropriate distance learning plans based on guidance from the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

I am pleased to let you know Superintendent Baesler and Governor Burgum have reviewed and approved your District Distance Learning Plan.

If you have further questions, feel free to contact me at or (701) 328-2755.
