Northern Cass School District
Hunter, North Dakota
It may be a traditional public school in North Dakota, but the ways in which it meets the needs of rural students is anything but traditional. Northern Cass demonstrates how a small rural district can be innovative to empower students for big things and support the whole community.

Why they stand out
How they STOP for education
Created a personalized competency-based learning district and created a policy to allow learning outside the walls of their building to articulate for credit in any content area.
Joined other transformational educators around the country in pushing to utilize a mastery transcript that will ensure a graduation pathway not linked to content but competencies to be accepted by all universities in their state.
Embraces a permissionless environment of education that disrupts the traditional education system.
