"The Blaine County School District Board of Trustees is working to build a strong partnership with the entire Blaine County community so that together we can meet the obligation to prepare our children for the daunting challenges of the present and the future.  Please join us for a conversation with Jamie Vollmer, a widely read and highly regarded author, businessman and lawyer whose message provides an outstanding opportunity for educators and the communities they serve to build trust and respect for each other and work together to provide a quality education for every one of our students.  Mr. Vollmer, a former harsh critic of public schools, is both enlightening and entertaining and everyone who attends will come away with fresh ideas about building a school system we can all trust and be proud of."  - R. Keith Roark, Chair, Blaine County School District Board of Trustees

No entity impacts more people in Blaine County than Blaine County School District.  Our public schools shape our community's current well-being and our future resilience - and we all have a stake in that.” Jenny Emery Davidson, Executive Director, The Community Library

Education is a fundamental social determinant of health.  We know that by partnering with our schools, and strengthening the education resources available to all children in our community, we are giving them a much stronger chance of being healthy and resilient." Erin Pfaeffle, Director, St. Luke's Center for Health
