A lesson in breaking the law

Garrison Schools to file formal complaint

By ALYSSA ADAM
Parshall School District may be in a little hot water.
The district may have broke century code laws by recruiting open enrollment students through advertising.
The ad was published for two weeks in the the McLean County Independent, the Mountrail County Record of Parshall and the area’s free circulation shopper, the Xtra.
At a special meeting of the Garrison School Board Wednesday, Superintendent Nick Klemisch was given the blessing to pursue a formal complaint against Parshall School District with the state Department of Public Instruction.
“This was sent to me the first time it ran in the Independent,” Klemisch told the board, displaying the recruitment ad. “I threw it out to other superintendents because I had a feeling this was not allowed, but I wasn’t sure of the specific century code.”
