ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools

Update #14:  Planning for new grade spans continues

Updated March 6, 2015

Plans for the move to new grade spans continue to advance on time and on budget. As the current school year begins to wind down, teams are fine-tuning their work and focusing on logistical considerations that will help ensure a successful transition to the new PreK/K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade configuration, beginning in  2015-2016.

Middle Level Design Team
Guide to Middle School will be mailed the week of March 9 to parents/guardians of students currently in grades 5-7. Middle school principals are also working on schedules for next year (determining which classes are held at what time during the day). Next steps for the middle level design team include considering any necessary changes to middle level report cards.

About the middle school music program
The way the music program is delivered in the middle school model will be different from the way it’s delivered in a junior high model, which will have some implications in terms of instructional time (more time for 6th graders); band/orchestra instruction (full vs small groups); and staffing (fewer staff required to deliver the program at the middle level).
