HL RECONFIGURATION FORUM Our district has an opportunity to reconfigure the grades to support student academic and personal development. An informational forum will be held on Tuesday, November 19th at 7:00 PM in the Alice Harris High School Auditorium. The proposal presented will be on reconfiguring the grade levels, starting September 2014. The grade reconfiguration will result in students from PK-6 attending classes at the current middle school site on Hyland Drive. Students in grades 7-12 will attend school at the current elementary/high school on Lake Avenue. Key points about grade reconfiguration include academic, developmental and professional alignment, building renovation, financial impact and community support. To participate in discussions regarding this reconfiguration please attend this informational forum on Tuesday, November 19th, at 7:00 PM in the high school auditorium or attend any meeting of the board of education or contact Mr. Berry directly with questions.
