North & South Dakota.

NORTH & SOUTH DAKOTA -- Students in grades K-12 along the North Dakota-South Dakota border will be able to attend schools in either state, due to a new cross-border enrollment program that allows students living in a border school district to attend a school in the neighboring state's bordering district. North Dakota already maintains a similar agreement with Montana and Minnesota. Some students live closer to the state border than to their current schools, traveling in one county, for instance, as far as 40 miles to their district schools. For financial purposes, each state will count the other's students as if they are state residents, and the district will receive state aid for those students. Districts that lose students will no longer need to negotiate out-of-state tuition rates.
