HPS Board of Trustees meets to discuss facilities
The Helena School Board of Trustees has decided not to close a local school as part of the educational facilities plan.
To save money, the board previously considered using Hawthorne, Broadwater or Central Elementary School as administration offices. Board Chair Libby Goldes says instead, schools will partner together to share resources and amenities. She says many people were happy to hear the news.
Goldes says, "That was met by a lot of opposition by community members who like their smaller schools and there's pros and cons to everything there's no perfect solution, but there are a lot of issues that have to be addressed.”
The plan is still in draft form and subject to further alterations. Tonight the board will further discuss educational facility planning.
