Attention Oak View Community
The states decision to fund all-day kindergarten beginning next year provides an exciting opportunity to accelerate early learning for students throughout our community. It also presents a need for more kindergarten classroom space.
It's exciting because we know that oearly learning is essential to helping students meet literacy requirements by third grade. Expanding our remaining half-day kindergarten programs to full-day means that we need more space at some elementary schools.
Administrators examined classroom space needs from district wide prespective and identified two potential changes that would help create the space needed to accommodate all-day kindergarten.
The first proposal was to return Cedar Island, Fair Oaks and Oak View to the same grade configuration (prek-5/6) as the other elementary schools in the district, with transition beginning in 2014-2015. On January 28th, the School Board approved the proposal and the related attendance area changes for each of the three schools. Watch your mailboxes for more information from the school district and let me know if you have questions.
The School Board is also considering the possibility of reconfiguring grade spans district wide to preK-5, 6-8 and 9-12. This idea was introduced at the December 17th school board work session. You can watch a video of the work session here. The conversation will continue at board meetings in the coming weeks.
