The Jefferson County School District is making plans with the Warm Springs Tribe to build a new elementary school in the next five years. The groups signed a new agreement which means the school district will continue to educate the students on the reservation, just as they've done for the last fifty years. School Superintendent Rick Molitors says the new agreement means the school district and the Tribal Council will need to think about financing the new school. “The joint partnership of trying to find the funding for that building. It's a challenge for reservations all across the nation to get funding for schools. We need to provide the best educational programs and facilities. There’s definitely a need in our district.” The new K-8 school is expected to cost $18 million. Molitor says they expect to divide the cost among the three groups: the school district, the Tribes and the federal government.
