Purpose: To assist our District in finding solutions to structural imbalance in the K-12 budget and reduce the reliance on non-sustainable one-time funds.
Description: The Budget Committee is made up of Trustees, community members, certified and classified staff, building and central office administration.
The Budget Committee would begin meeting monthly during the summer of 2022
3 Trustees represent the Board on this committee
This committee is advisory to the Board and Administration of the district in making recommendations to balance the K-8, and 9-12 General Fund Budget.
The consensus process will be used
The purpose of this survey tool is to engage the community of Bozeman in the K-12 Board Consensus Budget Committee -Mega Issue conversation. This tool is designed to capture questions from stakeholders, as well as create an opportunity for community members to weigh-in and help with the brainstorming related to solving the K-12 general fund imbalance that is being tackled via the Board Consensus Budget Committee process.
Prior to asking questions or providing ideas for potential solutions please ensure you are up-to-speed with the background information related to the topic. Please read through the information under the Agendas/Dates/Documents and Mega Issue Information tabs above.
Please Note: Due to the anticipated volume of survey responses the District may or may not respond directly to your question/s via email. However, the questions that are bubbling up will help inform the communications plan as the District moves through the process, thus ensuring that high frequency questions are being addressed via District communication channels and in the local media. Potential solutions that are submitted via this survey tool will be vetted by the District and discussed during the Board Consensus Budget Committee process.
Please Note: The survey tool is anonymous by design. Should you wish to provide an email address associated with your question/s the District may contact you with a direct response. The district is collecting simple demographic information in the survey tool to help guide communications moving forward.
Thanks for your participation and for your support of Bozeman Public Schools!
Casey Bertram, Superintendent
Purpose: Bring high school stakeholders together to look at schedules, systems, and structures to support implementation of MTSS and PLC aligned with District and Site goals.
Description: Bozeman Public Schools uses a Long Range Strategic Plan (LRSP) and associated District Five Year Plan to focus the collective efforts of school sites and staff. The District Five Year Plan is inclusive of the following goals:
Early Literacy Goal: By 2025, 85% of all children entering Kindergarten will have requisite literacy skills as measured by Acadience.
Grade Level Reading Goal: By 2025, 90% of all BSD7 3rd Grade Students will demonstrate grade-level reading skills by achieving a proficient score on the Acadience reading assessment at the end of the school year.
PLC Goal: By spring of 2025 all BSD7 schools PK-12 will have fully implemented PLC’s in place that will support the closing of the achievement gap, thus qualifying BSD7 as a Solution Tree Model PLC District.
TBD Graduation Goal: Tied to Graduation Rates - Developed During the 2021-2022 School Year - Launched Fall 2022
The K-12 PLC goal requires that the high school develop and launch a braided MTSS/PLC structure as the foundational approach for teaching and learning. Similar to the K-5 IMPACT schedule revisioning process the changes must be as close to cost neutral as possible. The following topics will be addressed during the high school consensus process:
Moving away from “MTSS via course”, and moving toward a sustainable intervention model that is inclusive of the following components established in the research: research-based, directive, administered by trained professionals, targeted, and timely.
Focused teacher collaboration time embedded within the teacher day for educators who share like standards to ask and answer the four essential PLC questions.
Core high school consensus group of teachers and administrators, one trustee, central office leadership
Meetings may occur during school (release time), after school, and during PIR days
The group will “launch” after the K-12 Budget Committee makes their recommendations
