The MT-PEC partners have developed Back to School: A Roadmap to Safely Reopen Montana’s Public Schools Using Emergency School District Policies as guidance to accompany the MTSBA Model Emergency Policies to empower public school leadership teams and employees in their governance of Montana’s local schools during a public health emergency. Montana’s public school districts serve students with transparency and accountability ensuring the operations of a public school reflect the circumstances in a community.

The policies will help boards of trustees and school leaders honor the following priorities:
  1. Quality instruction to students;
  2. A healthy and safe setting for students, staff, and the community;
  3. Needed the support of teachers and staff; and
  4. Responsible financial and operational procedures
The policies are intended to provide methods to plan for and complete the 2020-2021 school fiscal year in a manner that meets these priorities and secures district funding while providing an operational platform for considering long term innovations in the delivery of education services.
