On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, the Missoula County Public Schools Board of Trustees was scheduled to take action on recommended boundary changes for the Jeannette Rankin, Chief Charlo, and Russell school areas. 

During the presentation, we informed the board that a member of our advisory committee uncovered a mistake that existed in the map we published on our website and in the board packets. The mistake was an error in the map published on the website and in the board packet that involved three streets in change area #28 - Rainbow Drive, Reserve Street, and Gharrett St. These three streets should not have been colored pink and placed in the Russell Boundary area. These streets should have been colored orange and placed in the Chief Charlo boundary area. 
Identifying this error also gave the board a chance to more fully discuss all of the change areas in a way they hadn’t made time for until last night’s board meeting. Based on their discussion, they moved to:

Request that a corrected map be presented at the June 25, 2019 board meeting or a special board meeting which accurately describes the Advisory Committee’s recommendation with regard to change areas 28 and 29 and removes change areas 22 and 14.
This motion received unanimous approval from the elementary trustees present. 

If you would like to watch the MCAT recording of the meeting it is on their video on demand page online <>.

The administration is not recommending changes to any other schools’ boundaries for the 2019-20 school year. 

We will keep you updated later in June with regard to any action the board takes.

In the 2019-20 school year, MCPS will complete a boundary study on our three middle schools and three urban high schools. During that study, additional elementary boundary changes may be considered.

We anticipate that any additional boundary changes adopted during the 2019-20 school year will go into effect in the 2020-21 school year.

If you have any other questions, please contact Hatton Littman, MCPS Communications Director or give her a call at 728-2400 ext. 1024.
