Renewal Commission Report
On May 1, 2003 Governor Judy Martz signed House Bill 736 into law. The bill established a Montana K-12 Public School Renewal Commission to study the structure and funding of Montana public schools. The Commission began its work in July of 2003. On September 8, 2004, after many meetings and much deliberation, the Commission arrived at consensus on recommendations for changes in Montana K-12 education.
The Commission reported their recommendations to the Legislative Interim Committee on Education and Local Government. The Legislative Committee endorsed the recommendations of the Renewal Commission and urged individual lawmakers to carry the ideas to the 2005 Legislature. Their final report is available on the left.
