The U.S. Department of Education has selected Red Rock Central Secondary School in Lamberton as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School. This prestigious distinction recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools for their overall academic performance and progress in closing achievement gaps among students.
Representatives Collin Peterson (D-MN-07) and Alex Mooney (R-WV-02) introduced the bipartisan Addressing Teacher Shortages Act of 2018 to establish a competitive grant program at the Department of Education through which school districts can apply for funding to recruit, retain, and support teachers.
