The Hillsboro School District has been awarded a $500,000 grant from the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction to improve the literacy of students in prekindergarten through high school.

Superintendent Paula Suda informed the Hillsboro School Board about the grant award Thursday, calling the pending influx of state money “great news for the district.”

“This will be very good for our learners and our teachers,” Suda said. “We’re excited about that.”

Hillsboro was one of only seven schools in the state to be selected for the literacy grant.
