In early 2022, Helena Public Schools began a Facilities Master Planning process. This project was led by Helena-based SMA Architecture + Design, which has extensive experience in the field. The resulting DRAFT Master Facilities Plan provides an in-depth assessment of district facilities needs followed by recommendations for Trustees to consider as they make facilities decisions going forward.
The finalized plan will enable the Board of Trustees to make informed, strategic and sound decisions as the district works to bring 21st Century learning environments — on par with other Montana AA districts — to our Helena community.
The Board of Trustees will receive this draft plan at its regular meeting Tuesday, February 13. Trustees will review the document over the course of multiple meetings. Any future facilities actions Trustees decide to take as a result of the plan would be considered as agenda items at publicly noticed, regular Board meetings. All Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public and provide opportunity for public comment. Find meeting details here.
