  • The Alexander Public School Gets Well-Deserved RenovationsSeptember 26, 2016

    The Alexander School in Alexander, ND has gone through many needed changes in the last year. It all began two years ago when school officials began discussing the need for school expansion. At the time they had brought in a modular classroom to house the 5th and 6th grade students. From there, a demographic study was done, and then an architectural firm was hired to determine the cost for the necessary expansion and renovations.

    In October of 2014 the $17.1 million bond went before voters and passed with an 86% yes vote. The total cost of the project was $17.4 million, which included $300,000 in grants. Kraus Anderson Construction and Management were hired for the job, and they broke ground on the addition that would double the square footage of the school in August of 2015. In September after the first varsity volleyball game in 12 years, the north wall of the gymnasium shifted away from the building during the excavation process.

    “Thanks to the East Fairview School and Williston State College, we were able to continue our volleyball season,” said Superintendent Leslie Bieber. “After that, everything else went smoothly.”
