On October 24, 2018 the Colstrip School Board hosted a Workshop to discuss the mega-issues that may affect our community and school. MTSBA Debra Silk facilitated the meeting and used a Knowledge Based Decision Making Model to review the pending closure of Power Units 1 and 2 and the impacts that have the potential of impeding the School District’s ability to achieve the long term goal of the Colstrip School District to continue tp prepare our students for life, college and career readiness.
The School Board would like to invite the public to a follow-up meeting to share in the discussion and planning of future options and considerations in regards to the discussions that took place at the October 24 Workshop. Tyler Bush, Senior Executive at McKinstry will facilitate this meeting. The next Workshop will take place at 6:00 PM on November 15, 2018 in the High School Commons.
Your input in this process is valued and needed for addressing and finding solutions to the mega-issues identified above. We hope that you will be able to attend.
PROCESS USED FOR DECISION MAKING

The framework for this process in addressing and finding solutions to the mega-issues identified above is as follows:Question #1 – What do we know our students’ / parents’ / community’s / needs, wants and preferences that is relevant to this decision?Question #2 – What do we know about the current realities and evolving dynamics of our community that is relevant to this decision?Question #3 – What do we know about the capacity and strategic position of the Colstrip Public Schools that is relevant to this decision?Question #4 – What are the ethical implications of our choices?
