Havre School Board Won’t Run Levies This Year

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – On Tuesday, Havre’s School Board of Trustees met for their regular meeting at Havre Middle School. Superintendent of Schools Andy Carlson did not recommend running any levies to the School Board this year.

“I think we can operate with what our community supported from years past. We’re probably looking at levies a year out. I think that’s probably the reality, given where our population is and what we are going to have to do going forward. But, you know, when I ask for levies, I want it to be, you know, here’s our need. And I truly believe that’s where we’re headed, but not this year.”

Carlson says that they have adjusted one of their math classes that will now offer dual credits.

“There’s a new dual credit opportunity and we’re working in conjunction with Montana State University-Northern and it’s Math 105, which is Contemporary Mathematics. And, you know, we’ve got some really great dual credit partnerships with MSU-N and, yeah, this is just another addition.”

Carlson says they will be running a mail-only ballot for school board elections this year, but right now, they don’t have enough candidates to hold an election.
