• Chief Charlo  

    Our proposal to improve the building is designed to ensure Chief Charlo Elementary School students have a facility that meets the educational needs of 21st-century students.  When complete, Chief Charlo will be a smarter school in many ways, including: 
    • School entry and waiting area redesigned with clear lines of sight, enhancing school safety.
    • Existing classrooms connected through the installation of barn doors, promoting collaborative learning spaces for students and staff.
    • A schoolwide intercom system in all rooms improves communication and provides an effective means to relay important safety notices and other school information.
