The Missoula School Board is considering changing district boundaries for several elementary schools.

The changes would primarily affect Jeannette Rankin, Cheif Charlo, and Russell elementary.

Re-districting has been on the school board's agenda for months, but tonight's presentation now faces new opposition.

Just after 9 p.m. the board voted to table this discussion until their next meeting on June 25th. A discrepancy with the district map led to the decision to table the discussion.

"I'd prefer that we get specific with our map and only vote on a map that only has things that we are voting on" Vice Chair Diane Lorenzen said.

The motion to table the vote and request a new map be made was unanimously approved by the trustees present.

Officials say they hope delaying the vote will give administration enough time to fix their maps.
