    Background: 

    • The most recent MCPS building reserve levies were approved by Missoula County voters in 2011 and expired in 2016 (Elementary District) and 2018 (High School District).

    In 2015, Missoula County voters approved facility bonds that funded major new construction and remodeling projects throughout the District.  Building reserve levies would help maintain those investments and ensure our facilities stay in top condition.
