Planning for the move to new grade spans continues to advance on time and on budget. As earlier work winds down, emphasis is moving to logistics and school transition plans, ensuring that movement of staff and materials/equipment over the summer goes well and that students have smooth transitions to their new schools.
Each junior high offered information sessions for students and families to describe what students will experience in middle school. Secondary school transition plans incorporate feedback gathered from parents/guardians who highlighted the need for high quality orientations and student support (particularly in the area of relationships among middle school students) and clear, consistent communication from each school.
Registration for middle school and high school classes has been completed and staff will monitor implementation of the schedules next fall. Due to low student registration for 8th grade French at Maple Grove, Brooklyn and Osseo Middle Schools, the class will be offered only at North View Middle School. Spanish will be offered at all four middle schools.
