SD2 Talks about Bond

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

School District Two's $122.3 million bond was a hot topic at the school board meeting Monday night. Board members discussed architectural services for the schools and other important issues.

School officials want to hit the ground running on the deferred maintenance for the elementary schools and construction of two new middle schools. Board members talked about A&E Architects and Integrus and their work in phase one in constructing the new middle schools. They want to keep the work local, so the money will stay in our local economy.

"We've already talked quite a bit about how excited we are that this community has given their trust in us in allowing us basically to repaint the school district through significant renovations," said Lew Anderson, SD2 facilities executive director.

The board encourages participation from the public. They will have planning and development meetings each month and invite community members to attend.
