District Spotlight


Did you know that our elementary schools are 219 students over their building capacity?

Our Elementary Bond request will build a new school to relieve this overcrowding, and address deferred maintenance and upgrades to each of the elementary schools in our district. 

That means students at Edgerton, Elrod, Hedges, Peterson and Russell will all receive necessary improvements. Kalispell Middle School will also receive necessary maintenance.

Our high schools also have immediate building needs and a concurrent High School Bond provides for updates and much needed renovations to ALL of our high schools, but especially at Flathead High School.

  • Flathead High School is 106 years old and needs updates to bring it up to current fire code plus other major updates to preserve it for this generation and the next.

  • Linderman Education Center (which was built in 1939) also needs significant updates—some of its wiring dates back to the 50s and 60s.

  • The Agricultural Education Center will receive additional lab, classroom and commons space.

  • Legends Stadium will get an update to its facilities and Glacier High School will receive deferred maintenance.
