Montana Superintendent of Instruction Files for Re-election
Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau has filed for re-election.
Juneau filed as a Democrat Tuesday in Helena and said she is running on her performance the past three years, which includes the "Graduation Matters Montana" initiative, helping the most struggling schools and starting a Student Advisory Board, along with setting higher standards for math and English.
She said she will work to graduate more students from high school, improve college-going rates and provide "job-readiness opportunities" for students. She also pledged to prioritize student learning over federal testing.
"Our state's future economic success depends on Montana schools providing our students with a quality public education," she told her supporters.
