School board discusses educational planning
Helena Schools Superintendent Kent Kultgen presented his educational planning and operational implementation plan at tonight's school board meeting.
Also at the meeting a demographic consultant company made a presentation focusing on what needs to be changed in the school district to accommodate a slight increase of students over the next 10 years. Afterwards Kultgen provided insights and ideas of how he thinks the district could make those changes a reality and also provide students with a 21st century learning environment.
"Through this process every once in a while, someone will come up and whisper to me; should we look at the boundaries? And I know well enough as you do, as everybody does that, that is a very touchy situation. However listening to Copper tonight you understand that boundaries do need to be touched."
The presenters also threw out the idea of expanding Rossiter and Jim Darcy Schools to accommodate grades K through 8, but Kultgen worries it could cost too much.
