MISSOULA — Missoula County Public Schools (MCPS) administrators say they want as much public input as possible as they develop a new plan outlining the district's goals for the next five years.

MCPS is hosting the first meeting in the strategic planning process on Thursday in the MCPS Business Building at 915 South Avenue.

The next two meetings -- which will also take place in the MCPS Business Building -- will occur on Feb. 25 and March 25. All of the sessions will run from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Public comment will be accepted at each session.

There have been over 2,500 responses to the survey published earlier this month requesting feedback from students, parents, and the community, MCPS spokeswoman Hatton Littman notes in a news release.

The input offered in the survey will be used at the strategic planning sessions to set the future direction for the District.

"We want everyone to participate. We sent the survey to all of our high school students. We want parents, we want community members, whether they have students in the schools or not," Littman previously told MTN News.
