  • Bond Presentations

    Posted by Terry Bouck at 9/13/2013
    Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,

    The 2013-2014 school year is well under way. We continue to have a great year with eager students, engaged staff and a community poised to support our public schools. Along with the cooler temperatures comes a renewed focus on the future. As our staff and kids settle into their routines, I am able to pause and be grateful for a promising school year for Billings Public Schools.

    In this regard, our Board has been looking even beyond the current school year. As you may know, the Trustees recently approved putting to the voters of Billings an opportunity to address some challenging issues we currently face in order to provide a brighter future for our students and all of Billings. This November, we will all have the opportunity to vote on a bond measure that will give our students the space they need to focus on their education and that will also improve teacher to student ratio so that all students are able to be given the best possible starts in life. Naturally, with large commitment comes many questions. Both our Board and team of dedicated administrators have worked tirelessly to make sure these questions can be answered. If you would like to be a part of this process, or if you have questions of your own, please join us for one of our bond issues presentations, taking place every Wednesday night from September 18th - October 30th at 6:00pm in the Lincoln Center Board Room. We welcome all questions and concerns that you may have regarding our future and how the bond referendum will impact us all.

    I look forward to the road ahead and this coming school year which is filled with promise.

    Sincerely,

    Terry Nelsen Bouck, Superintendent

  • Schedule Change

    Schedule

     
    Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,

    I wanted to inform you of a schedule change for next week's Core Design Team's Community Open Houses. A&E Architects,  Integrus Architecture and Billings Public Schools had originally scheduled a morning  and evening community open house on Thursday, September 5, 2013. We've decided to reschedule since there are already several important events scheduled for the first few weeks of September. 

    The new date is Wednesday, September 25, 2013, in the Lincoln Center Board Room. Please check out the complete information on the right and make a point to attend one of these open houses.

    Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend.

    Terry Nelsen Bouck, Superintendent

  • Security is Essential

    Posted by Superintendent Terry Nelsen Bouck at 8/29/2013
    Each new school year is an opportunity to remind our students, parents, staff and community to be safe. In light of the pedestrian tragedy on Grand Avenue yesterday, please remind your children, friends and family to use caution while walking or driving. When walking, use crosswalks, cross at marked intersections with the light, use sidewalks and remain aware of your surroundings. When driving, drive at the posted speed limit and obey all traffic signals, avoid distraction and pay particular attention to bicyclists and pedestrians. Don’t text while walking or driving. Also, parents please remind your children never to talk to strangers and to tell a trusted adult or dial 911 if they feel threatened. Let’s all keep our community safer by being alert.

  • Great Start!

    Posted by Superintendent Terry Nelsen Bouck at 8/29/2013

    Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,

    We are off to a great start this year with clean buildings, high staff morale and students that are engaged and happy. This provides a wonderful springboard for authentic collaboration as we focus on increasing student achievement throughout Billings Public Schools. I want our families and community members to visit our schools and classrooms to see the incredible staff and students at work. We are also eager to have volunteers in our schools and we encourage you to check with your local school principal. Finally, I have included some important information below for your review. 
    Thank you for your support of our students, staff and school district.
    Sincerely,
    Terry Nelsen Bouck

  • Comments Regarding Sentencing of Stacey D. Rambold

    Posted by Superintendent Terry Nelsen Bouck at 8/29/2013
    Billings Public Schools is deeply disappointed that Stacey Rambold will not be spending more time in jail. The School District supports the County Attorney's requested sentence of 20 years in prison, with 10 years suspended. What Mr. Rambold did when he was a teacher was repugnant and inexcusable. While I respect our court system, I disagree with sentence, and I believe Mr. Rambold deserves to spend more time in jail than the 30 days. Please read the Media Advisory here.

  • Budget Summary 2013-2014

    Posted by Terry Bouck at 8/23/2013

    The Billings Public Schools budget fiscal year is July 1st-June 30th. There are two budget districts, one serving grades K-8 and one for grades 9-12. The elementary general fund for FY2014 is $72,049,475. The high school budget for FY2014 is $38,142,969. The Board of Trustees adopted the budgets on Monday, August 19th. The goal for this school year will be to find efficiencies of one percent savings in the budgets. This will be a District-wide effort and will involve all stakeholders. The budgets directly support teaching and learning in the District so we can provide the city of Billings with the best educational resources possible.
