District discusses portables


September 25, 2019

Continued growth and a lack of space for students and teachers has the Three Forks School District discussing the possibility of portable buildings for the 2020-21 school year.

The possibility of portable buildings for Three Forks High School and Elementary School were discussed at last week's school board meeting.

Three Forks Superintendent Jeff Elliott said the district has outgrown their facilities and is looking for a temporary solution going forward. He said both temporary portables as well as permanent portables with a foundation were discussed with the board leaning towards temporary buildings.

Elliott discussed the need for additional space for students and teachers and said there are currently three health teachers using the same room, art classes sharing the same room, and an English teacher having to teach a class in the auditorium which is not ideal.

Elliott would like the elementary school to hire a third fourth grade teacher but said they do not have anywhere to put them. Elliott said they want to have a least one new temporary classroom for both the elementary and high school, adding ideally the number would be two for each school.

Looking toward the future, Elliott said the district is looking to do a bond in February or early Spring and is going to start having facilities meetings to discuss the issue.

The board will next meet Tuesday, October 15
