SD2 Approves New Trustee, Schooling Arrangements

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

In a special meeting, School District Two's Board of Trustees voted on a successor to a vacant trustee seat, as well as measures to reduce overcrowding in area elementary schools.

According to Board Chair Allen Halter, the board voted to approve plans to send 6th graders in Broadwater, Orchard, and Burlington Elementary to Lewis and Clark, Riverside, and Will James Middle Schools, respectively.

In particular, 6th graders in Burlington will be sent to either Lewis and Clark and Will James Middle Schools.

SD Two officials said earlier Monday the final vote was a mere formality.

Currently, 6th graders who are supposed to attend Arrowhead, Washington, and McKinley Elementary Schools go to Middle Schools.

The board also interviewed candidates to succeed Pam Ellis, who resigned from the Board of Trustees in late May. Virgil Mittendorf and Janna Hafer were the final candidates, and Halter said the board voted 4-2 for Hafer.
