• MEETING 21st-CENTURY NEEDS WITH OUR FACILITIES

    Welcome to Smart Schools 2020, a system wide initiative to create school facilities that provide students with the security, technology and dynamic learning environment they need to achieve in school and in life. Missoula County Public Schools has been working diligently for 18 months on a plan and strategy to evolve all its facilities to best meet the needs of our students, teachers, staff, families and community.
     
    Our planning focuses on providing 21st-century educational facilities that ensure all our students have the best opportunities for their achievement - both in K-12 classwork and beyond in higher education and the workforce.  Our planning focuses on flexible, dynamic buildings that will evolve with the needs of our students, teachers and all staff members, today and into the future.  And, our planning focuses on fiscal responsibility.
     
    While each school site had a local team of parents, students, staff and administrators to design a plan for the future use of their school, plans for the MCPS districts' properties were all addressed by the Steering Committee.  Each recommendation identifies the Steering Committee's best work to align the school system's leased and unused properties as well as its administrative offices to the needs of MCPS in the 21st century.
     
    We invite you to learn more about the plans, and get involved in shaping the future of education for our children.  Please feel free to email Director of Technology and Communications Hatton Littman hlittman@mcps.k12.mt.us.
