Fountain Valley : Board Moves Closer to Overhaul of Schools
The school board has decided to move a step closer toward possible reorganization of the school system.
At a meeting Thursday night, the trustees decided to further investigate one of three options they had been studying for reorganizing schools by grades. Rabbi Stephen Einstein, a board member, said the board favored the option of placing sixth- through eighth-grade students in middle schools and all kindergarten through fifth-grade students in separate elementary schools.
That possibility will be the subject of a public hearing April 17, Einstein said. The time and location are to be announced later.
While the board did not commit itself, “we have moved it (the middle school-elementary school option) a step further,” Einstein said.
