Missoula County Public Schools held their third meeting Thursday night discussing elementary school boundary changes.
Officials presented three different options to a panel of parents and staff who make up the advisory committee.
A few concerns were walkability of schools, how they would grandfather in current students and what the changes could mean for real estate.
“There’s a lot of different opinions that are being presented tonight,” explained MCPS spokeswoman Hatton Littman, “also considering that we need to find a way to effectively balance the 3,700 students we have in our district right now and the 3,800 students we’re going to have when we peak.”
The next open house will be Thursday, March 21.
MCPS is encouraging parent and public participation in the process.
