Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard said Friday afternoon that state officials said Willmar's grant application was well-written and thorough.

The district may be eligible to receive similar grants for the next two years.

The SIG funding should come to the district this fall and will allow the school to offer more intense instruction for students who need extra attention.
