School District Annexation
School district annexation is the process of redefining the school district line into a new school district. Your first step in the process is to contact the Williams County Schools Administrative Assistant and seek assistance in completing the Annexation Petition. Contact information is provided to the left.

The Williams County Committee for School District Annexations, Dissolutions and Reorganizations will then vote on whether to pass or deny the petition. If there is testimony against the petition, it will go to Bismarck where the state committee will approve or deny the petition.

Additional information about annexation can be found on the ND DPI website.

The form to complete an Annexation Findings of Fact can be found here

Williams County Education and Collaboration Initiative

On August 6, 2019, the Williams County Commission formally approved funding to conduct an external study that will collect and analyze data and information about public school districts. The overall goal is to compel a collaborative process, providing sound facts, analysis, and options for which optimal decisions can be made to ensure adequate, safe, and accessible school facilities for students across the County. Williams County is pleased to be working in conjunction with the Governor’s Office and the Department of Public Instruction on this effort.

More information about the initiative, including the study documents, can be accessed by clicking here.
