FERGUS FALLS — Twelve area fellows, including Rick Sansted, superintendent of Alexandria Public Schools, have been selected to participate in the Rural Cohort of the Education Policy Fellowship (EPF).

Participants were chosen throughout Lakes Country Service Cooperative's nine-county region in West Central Minnesota. The Minnesota EPF is a joint partnership between The Center for Policy Design and LCSC.

The fellowship primarily focuses on state and federal public policy development and the leadership necessary to influence public policy development. It is designed to expand and update participants working knowledge of state and federal public policy, analysis, design and implementation.

The fellowship’s learning process is experiential, according to the cooperative. It is based on the belief that knowledge and skills are the “residue left when the experience wears off.”

Troy Haugen, coordinator of the Rural Fellowship Cohort and LCSC director of career and college readiness, said, “Our goal for the policy fellowship is multi-faceted — to increase capacity in our school leaders in understanding the education policy landscape state and nationwide, to see stronger intersections outside the immediate school ecosystems, and to functionally shift systems not serving our students in the best way for their future.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
