Hello District Administrators,

I am reaching out to let you know that during the evening of this Wednesday, August 30th, the OPI’s new website will be going live. This website will better serve districts in accessing information from the OPI. The website will be more user-friendly and contain more up-to-date, timely, and relevant information for districts and the public to access. You will also notice an improved search function and mobile capabilities. The web address will remain the same: opi.mt.gov. The update applies only to the main OPI website, not other websites that the OPI maintains such as GEMS.

Hyperlinks that you may currently have saved for the OPI website will no longer be active after Wednesday. If you need access to data that is no longer on the new OPI website, we will have it archived and we are happy to retrieve it for you.

While the goal is to provide districts and the public with more user-friendly access to relevant information, please reach out to me if you have any questions or issues with the new website.

Thank you,


Dylan Klapmeier

Director of Communications and Federal Relations
