RECONFIGURATION

As you know, our school community has investigated the opportunity to reconfigure its grades several times over the last two decades. On each occasion, the process stalled as the costs rose. Last fall, the district received word from the state education department that the grades could be reconfigured with far fewer building renovations and lower costs. The grade reconfiguration plan being presented is a product of that news. The plan proposes to bring all of the elementary grades (PK-6; including Head Start) under one roof at the current middle school. Students in grades 7-12 would attend school at the current elementary/high school. Bathroom renovations, science classroom improvements, carpet replacement and abatement for some classrooms and other areas of the elementary wing and high school are part of the proposed project that will allow the grade reconfiguration to occur. Taxes will not be raised to pay for the renovations. Funding for the project will be taken from our fund balance (savings) and our capital fund. State building aid will return 58% of the cost of the renovations (approximately $510,000) over a 15 year period reducing the cost to the district even further.

 

It is hoped that reconfiguring the grades will improve student achievement by better aligning the grades, resources and practices needed to significantly improve reading instruction; in addition, grade reconfiguration will support increased opportunities for enrichment and acceleration, while continuing to support student development.
