New Rockford-Sheyenne Public School District is a school district of the publicly funded school serving the cities of New Rockford, and Sheyenne, and the surrounding rural areas. The district administration offices are in New Rockford.
On February 27, 2006, 82 students in New Rockford skipped school. This protest occurred because eight or nine teachers were in danger of losing their jobs. 50 students stood in the cold for the entire day. Students were not punished or counted absent, because it was a learning experience. Michael Zimmerman, a protesting student, was hit a car but escaped uninjured. The students protested again on March 6, 2006.
