Has staffing, curriculum and structure been determined for the new middle school model?
These important conversations have already started, and they will continue to occur over the next couple of years leading to a sixth grade transition. A process will be developed to transition sixth grade (and potentially other) teachers from elementary to middle school. This may include a sixth grade teacher who wants to move to middle school but could also include other elementary staff who would like to make this transition. It is important to note that this would not involve an overall reduction in staff, so no elementary teachers would lose their jobs. Please know that these important decisions are in no way finalized and will continue collaboratively if the bond issue is approved.
