BILLINGS- Lockwood schools will entertain discussion Tuesday evening on whether to add freshman students to the district a year ahead of the opening of their new high school.

The board meets 6 p.m. Tuesday in the administration building in Lockwood for the discussion, but the district isn’t set to make a decision until February.

Voters approved a $49.9 million high school for Lockwood in May to open for the 2020-2021 school year.

The early class would be housed in an auxiliary building built as a part of the new high school.

School District 2 has a policy for out of district students, so the Lockwood school board will have to decide to pay tuition for kids who go to Billings or hold off on having freshman start early.
