Email News Alerts

Detroit Lakes Public Schools is angling for more money. The school board approved a letter of agreement with the state Monday night as part of a push to join the federal Race to the Top Initiative.


Race to the Top would inject over $4 billion into the nation's schools, with only 10-15 states expected to get the grants.

Detroit Lakes could get an additional $3.5 million in funding over four years if Minnesota is one of the states selected for Race to the Top.
