Kids Weigh In On School Plans

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

School District 2 is not just asking the architects about the core design for the new middle schools -- but kids too.

School leaders along with A&E Architects invited more than 20 students to participate in a focus group.

They were shown pictures of other schools and asked their opinions of what should go into the new design.

"I think it's good to have more of the kids point of view instead of just the architect's design, the kids have in their design process and what they want to expect from middle school I think is a lot better than the adults," says D.C. Chelgren, a sophomore at Skyview.

It wasn't just the overall design, the kids were asked about how the cafeteria should be, the commons area as well as the gym and theater.
