Gallatin Gateway School Seeks Quality Schools Grant for 2015

Since early in 2011 the Gallatin Gateway School Board has been visiting with the Gallatin Gateway community members about school facility needs and major repairs. The Board determined that the identification of several heating and ventilating deficiencies create a substandard learning environment as well as significant energy waste.   

The District received $14,800 in 2012 allowing engineers to complete a facility’s preliminary engineering report (PER) for the Gallatin Gateway School.  This report identifies the most significant needs of our K-8 building.  The report is available below.

On Friday, July 27, 2012 the Department of Commerce announced the reopening of the Quality Schools Grant Program application process due to the Governor identifying alternative funding for the Quality Schools Grant Program for the 2015 biennium. 

Applications can be submitted from Tuesday, July 31, 2012 through 5:00 p.m. Monday, October 1, 2012. Applications received in this 60-day period will be ranked and scored by the Department following the close of the application process in the fall.  Those projects recommended for funding by the Governor will be included in HB 15 of the 2013 legislative session.

The Gallatin Gateway School board is inviting input from the community by contacting Superintendent Kim DeBruycker at 763-4415, or or by attending the September 10, 2012 board meeting at 7:00 pm in the school cafeteria. 


More information can be found on the Montana Department of Commerce website.
