I personally feel like this school needs to let go (fire) teachers that are in HeartButte purely for the paycheck. The school has alot of needs that are not being met. I understand budget is a problem but that is why community members need to stand up and speak up and vote people in the school board for reasons that revolve helping this community versus avoiding the real issues and the ones that everyone would rather forget about.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Montana used the Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to assess students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in reading and math and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Montana. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
