Happy Thanksgiving!

With the close of the 2017 Special Session, the OPI wanted to ensure schools were notified of the upcoming changes to school funding.

The attached document is intended to provide a snapshot of the changes from the 2017 Special Session, as well as a recap of the funding changes since the end of the 2017 Regular Session in May.

Additional technical guidance to schools will be distributed by the end of November, which will also allow time for the Goveror to sign the bills into law.

Any questions or comments can be directed to Kara Sperle, School Finance Administrator at ksperle2@mt.gov or 406-444-3249.

Thank you.
