Middle School restructuring

The Middle School restructuring proposal was an inevitable topic at our June 12 meeting, though all the elements are already in place. It was clear that the restructuring took place for budget reasons, but there was concern about what the long term impact would be.

“What impact to you believe the middle school restructuring will have on the quality of the Middle School educational experience? What steps can be taken to mitigate negative effects? Would changes be made again if funding becomes available?”

“Could we please revisit the option of returning to a K-6, 7-9, 10-12 system?”

“[On middle school cuts,] should we work to get back what we just lost? It seems we have gone against what is ‘best’ for this age group in the cuts.”

What are your thoughts, concerns and hopes?
