BIG SKY – The Big Sky School District School Board held a special board meeting on April 24 to address the option of returning to a traditional learning format in the coming weeks. The school board voted unanimously to continue utilizing the online learning format they implemented on March 18 for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
The meeting spurred from Gov. Steve Bullock’s phased reopening plan, which allows individual school districts to determine if they would like to return to a traditional school setting on May 7.
