Secondary education programs at Montana State University-Northern are not being terminated, and a task force will be appointed to provide recommendations with regard to these programs, the university announced Wednesday afternoon.
"We have listened to community leaders and school representatives from across the Hi-Line with regard to Northern's secondary education program," stated Dr. James Limbaugh.
As part of a program review, Limbaugh recommended that the programs be eliminated, while elementary education programs would continue.
"Based on comments and suggestions received from community members all across the Hi-Line and after a great deal of re-evaluation, I have decided to recommend to the Board of Regents that MSU-Northern place our secondary education programs in moratorium and not to terminate them."
