Update on planning for new grade spans (PreK/K-5, 6-8, 9-12) beginning 2015-2016

Planning is well underway for new grade spans (PreK/K-5; 6-8; 9-12) that will be implemented beginning in the 2015-2016 school year.

Changing grade spans offers new opportunities to meet the developmental and academic needs of 6th graders and 9th graders. It will also help relieve space pressures at the elementary level, particularly related to the expansion of all-day kindergarten for all students.

In order to accommodate 9th graders at the high school level, space will be created at each of the three comprehensive high schools through building additions and remodeling/repurposing of existing space.

In the long term, the new grade configuration will provide benefits to students at all levels (e.g., potential expansion of early learning opportunities; more flexibility with space at elementary schools; new opportunities to meet the social/academic needs of adolescents at middle level; a more coherent high school program with all courses required for graduation under one roof; and alignment with state K-12 academic standards). Moving to the new grade spans will help our schools ensure high levels of achievement for all students.
