Missoula County Public Schools continues to plow through its facilities planning process, a thing that has all the potential in the world for being dry and boring and poorly attended.

Which is why I love to see photos like this:

Now that’s participation!

Look at all these people interested in the future of Missoula’s schools and students.

They’re putting deep thought into things like “dynamic educational environments” and “various models of school organization.”

And they’re not nearly done yet.

Tomorrow’s the next big opportunity for public involvement, as MCPS communications head Hatton Littman wrote in yesterday’s opinion in the Missoulian. To join in, just show up at the next Community Listening Session on Wednesday, 6:30-8 p.m. at the Broadway Inn Hotel and Conference Center, 1609 W. Broadway.
