Helena - Montana Unified School Trust (MUST), is excited to be able to offer Montana’s public schools additional flexibility and efficiencies in their funding of employee health benefits. Public schools now have the option to participate in the MUST Multidistrict Agreement to support services and activities for the funding and operations related to their employee health benefits. “My focus at MUST has been to ensure we are responsive to our membership and to look for options to meet their needs. The Multidistrict Agreement allows MUST to help our public schools utilize available means to fund employee benefits,” said Andrew Holmlund, CEO of Montana School Services Foundation (MSSF).
As a retired superintendent, “I believe support of our public schools and staff is essential in providing an excellent education for our youth. With one focus, we at MUST are proud to partner with our public schools for finding solutions aimed at tackling their challenges,” Mr. Holmlund shared.
