Missoula school administrators talk bond projects, security at City Club

March 12, 2018View for printing

Student safety is one of the primary needs being addressed with the $158 million in bonds that voters approved for Missoula County public schools in 2015, MCPS Superintendent Mark Thane told Monday's monthly meeting of City Club Missoula

Thane was one of three MCPS leaders Monday who outlined how the district is spending the bond money. He also addressed the importance of security following last month's school shooting in Florida that killed 17 people.

Following that shooting, MCPS had a handful of threats at its high schools, including a day when Big Sky High School went into lockdown after a threatening message was found in a locker room.

"We need to provide an environment that provides the greatest level of security for our students," Thane said.
