SD2 Holds Community Input Meeting

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

School District Two leaders held a meeting Tuesday night to listen to ideas people have for the new middle schools.

Community members say they are excited to help shape schools for future generations. Over the next month, SD2 leaders are seeking suggestions for the two new middle schools being built.

"I've been really excited about the outreach the school district has been doing and to get the public involvement, student involvement in how to shape these facilities," said Kim Prill, a parent of a student at Will James Middle School.

Through a question and answer session, school officials addressed questions and got new ideas. An orchestra teacher in attendance wants the school board to strongly consider the need for auditoriums.

"Every fall, we have such a problem scheduling concerts and venues because we don't have enough even now," said Vikki Payne, a teacher at Will James. "And I can't imagine if we built two schools without venues for performing."

Officials also set up board where attendees could write their concerns on post-its. Parents, as well as school leaders, encourage continued involvement.

"I think whether or not you have kids active right now, at this stage, I think the school structure, the educational curriculum, this is a really exciting moment for the community to design and shape for future generations for the school kids," Prill said.

Another meeting takes place Wednesday night at Castle Rock Middle School from 6:00-7:30 PM.
