Board of Public Education
MSDB is under the general supervision, direction, and control of the Board of Public Education (MCA, 20-8-101). The Board of Public Education also adopts and prescribes rules that are necessary and proper for the maintenance and governance of the school, the admission procedures, and the qualifications of staff (MCA 20-8-103).
The Board of Public Education meets on a bi-monthly basis starting in January of each year. At times, the BOPE may call special meetings to work on educational issues that arise and are time sensitive. In the months that the full BOPE does not meet, MSDB administration meets with the BOPE to provide updates on school events. The notes from the committee meeting are then placed into the full board packet the following month. For more information about the MSDB/BOPE bi-monthly meetings, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
