GINW school board discusses middle school
The Grand Island Northwest school board is continuing restructuring talks, now focusing on middle school.
Superintendent Matt Fisher said Monday night's agenda acted as a review to board members and an introduction of ideas to the public. This comes after several months of committee meetings on how to create a centralized middle school for 6th through 8th graders.
Fisher said there was support for a middle school during last year's meetings.
"St. Libory, 1-R, and Cedar Hollow are still K-8 buildings," said GINW Superintendent Matt Fisher. "So with our middle school students spread across three buildings we really can't offer the programming we really like to offer those middle school students because we'd have to recreate it at three different sites."
No action was taken at Monday night's meeting, but a community focus group will be held October 16 where board members will meet with community members to get feedback.
