WHITE EARTH, Minn. - The K-12 Circle of Life Academy in White Earth faces unverified test scores and a $1.1 million budget deficit that could have forced the school to close if not for a $1.3 million cash infusion from the tribal general fund, according to a news release from the White Earth Tribal Council.

Interim Circle of Life Academy Superintendent Jenna Leadbetter informed the Tribal Council about the problems at the school. Brent Gish, who has extensive experience in Indian education, is helping Leadbetter sort through the school's financial affairs.
