School lands $495,000 state safety grant

by Tom Coombe
The Ely School District is now $495,000 closer to its goal of connecting the district’s three major buildings.
That’s how much the district was awarded this week from the Minnesota Department of Education, which announced the recipients of its School Safety Grants.
Not only did Ely make the cut - the district got one of the largest grant awards in the entire state.
The grant, one of 90 doled out in Minnesota, will help the district offset a sizeable chunk of the roughly $1.33 million cost to connect the Washington, Memorial and Industrial Arts buildings.
“Our challenge at this point is to come up with a plan to cover the other 63 percent, but that’s better than having to secure 100 percent,” superintendent Kevin Abrahamson said Wednesday.
