ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools

Update #12:  Planning for new grade spans continues

Updated December 12, 2014

Planning for the transition to new grade spans continues to advance on time and on budget. Key areas of work include:

The Middle Level Design team continues its work to design all aspects of the middle level program.

Curriculum
The middle level design team is considering offerings that will be provided for exploratory/elective courses. Current 7th and 8th grade course offerings along with other options are being considered. A recommendation will be provided to administration in January 2015. 

A team of current S+ teachers, curriculum team members and administrators are considering how to address the unique needs of gifted and talented students in the middle school model. A recommendation will be made to administration by the end of January 2015.

Scheduling
The team has recommended that each middle school offer a modified eight-period day that allows for two exploratory/elective classes with flexibility within the six remaining periods to offer four core classes plus advisory and lunch.

Future Planning
Next steps include providing course information for 2015-2016 registration, revising middle level report cards for 2015-16, developing the advisory curriculum and identifying additional materials that will be needed for grades 6-8.
