CHICAGO -- The school board in Minot, N.D., grappling with a spike in enrollment from the state’s historic oil boom, will ask voters in a special election this year to approve a $125 million borrowing, the largest in its history.

The district would use the proceeds for a new elementary school and a second high school as well as additions and renovations of current schools, according to local reports. The district is currently using portable classrooms to accommodate recent growth. Officials said they will run out of space in the middle school if growth continues.
