In the third of this series of emails we would like to present to you some of the frequently asked questions that have come up from our Community Conversations and other feedback from the public.Please look for a FAQ email next week and then check out the District Reorganization website for the full list.

How will the Encore classes work?

At the 7th and 8th grade levels, Encore classes are the courses that support the core. These include physical education, health, life skills, band, orchestra, choir and enrichment or support classes for math. While we do not have a specific schedule set up at this time (we will work with a committee on this during the 2016-17 school year), we do know that some of these courses will be offered either at the current middle school or current high school. We will look to have 7th and 8th grade students take these courses either at the start of the school day, or at the end of the school day to reduce transportation time. The district will provide transportation for the students to and from either the middle school or high school, depending on the building holding the course. There are districts in the area who do this already, so we will be contacting them to learn more about the process.  

How will middle school sports be handled for the two 7th and 8th grade buildings?

We will be combining our 7th and 8th grade students to have one sports program. There will not be one building vs. another building. All practices will take place in the current middle school facility and transportation will be provided after school for students who need to attend practices/games.
