Lockwood voters to consider new high school

Posted: Updated:

Lockwood will take the first step in building a high school.

Supporters of a new high school met for a rally to kick off the door to door campaigning on Saturday.

They passed out campaign signs and information for the Nov. 7 election.

A law passed in the state legislature allows Lockwood to consider a proposition to expand its school district from kindergarten through eighth grade, to kindergarten through 12th grade.

A new high school is an idea that has drawn a positive response in Lockwood.

"Personally I've talked to hundreds of people in the community over the last four or five years as part of the committee and everybody's very pro for it,” said Chad Hanson, chair of the Lockwood Community Education Committee. “It's going to be huge for our community. of course it comes down to not this vote but the next one when are you willing top pay for it?  There's a lot of community pride out here. Our school district's very strong. Parents are very involved. so it's very strong right now."

Hanson said the potential Class-A  high school would have about the same number of students as Central, Laurel, Hardin or Miles City.

The mail-in election is November 7.
