School leaders are inviting the community and surrounding districts to an informational meeting on June 1 at Flathead High School.
Mark Flatau, superintendent of Kalispell Public Schools, said the event will explain the year-long planning efforts for elementary and high school needs throughout town. School planners and administrators say the elementary district is in desperate need of new facilities to address a swelling student population that hit a record 3,018 kids this fall. Kalispell Middle School, with nearly 1,100 students, is the lone middle school in town and the largest in Montana. The high school district also has deferred maintanence needs, according to school officials.
The June 1 informational meeting will start at 6 p.m. and feature food and an open question-and-answer session.
