      MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man has been sentenced to a day in jail and two years of probation for withdrawing money without permission from the account of a resident at the Kalix facility that serves people with developmental disabilities.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A proposal by the North Dakota Board of Higher Education that would cut down on the number of face-to-face meetings and take those gatherings off the campuses is being criticized by college professors and others. The board next month will approve meeting plans for 2018.
 
     Chairman Don Morton is proposing the board come together four times a year in Bismarck. Other regularly scheduled meetings would be held via video network. Morton says he wants to make the best use of board members' time.
 
     Dickinson State University professor Debora Dragseth is president of the state Council of College Faculties. She says the change would be bad for transparency and collaboration.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Steady growth in Mandan in recent years has brought an uptick in crime. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the city's police experienced an 18 percent increase in calls between 2015 and 2016.
 
     Mandan police officers also spent several months responding to protests over the Dakota Access oil pipeline, sometimes with as many as 10 to 15 officers at a time on emergency calls. Officers also were trained in administering drugs to stop opioid overdoses.
 
     Drug offenses are up statewide, but in Mandan they increased 43 percent last year. Assaults in the city were up 33 percent. Domestic violence cases are separate from assaults, and the department added a domestic violence detective this year.
 
     Lt. Pat Haug says the department has 37 sworn officers, with two openings.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Native American students in North Dakota are continuing to struggle in school, despite the state's overall high school graduation rate remaining high.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction held a Dropout Prevention and Re-engagement Summit on Oct. 11. The summit was scheduled after teachers of Native American students across the state requested to know more information about dropout prevention strategies.
 
     Sandy Addis is the keynote speaker and director of the Clemson University's National Dropout Prevention Center. She says the state is "significantly ahead  of the nation" in terms of its high school graduation rate. Addis says while there has been some progress among Native American students, there's much more room to improve. She notes that low-income student graduation rates continue to fall behind.
