Representatives from the Department of the Interior, and members of the Minnesota Congressional Delegation will be in attendance for the Dedication.

The School District received notification in April, 2016 that the Bureau of Indian Affairs had determined that Bug O Nay Ge Shig School District would receive funding for the design and building of a new high school that would be located adjacent to the existing administrative and elementary building on the main campus. Design began in January, 2017, and the school’s foundation was started in May, 2017. The structure is a modular design, which is a first of its type within the Bureau of Indian Affairs school footprints, as it allows for a build response that significantly reduces the actual build time and is therefore different from a mortar/brick design.
