ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools

Planning for new grade spans continues

Updated November 21, 2014

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

Middle Level Design
A large team is working to design all aspects of the middle level program. The team has determined that each middle school will 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. Members are now working to identify exploratory course offerings. The team is also determining how to meet the needs of gifted and talented students within the interdisciplinary team model, with a decision to be made by early January. Next steps for the Middle Level Design Team include preparing 2015-2016 registration materials and defining the daily advisory curriculum.

High School Program
The High School Program team has determined that the high school (starting with 9th grade) science sequence will remain as it is now. The team has also discussed and provided feedback on a proposed change to the Park Center Senior High schedule that would strengthen the International Baccalaureate Programme. The team is also preparing next year’s high school registration materials.
