What are the capacity concerns?
In general, our middle schools are under capacity. The Facilities Master Plan determined our middle schools are significantly underutilized with 5,422 available seats. In contrast, many of our elementary schools are over capacity. Transitioning 6th grade students to the middle schools will create balance in our facilities. The transition will also provide the opportunity to remove 147 temporary classrooms from elementary sites.

My elementary school has a number of modular buildings which may be empty after the grade move. What will happen to those modulars?
The district either owns the modulars or leases them. Owned buildings will either be mothballed or demolished, depending upon age and condition. Leased buildings will be returned to the vendors.

What construction is currently occurring to accommodate the transition of 6th grade students?
The Board of Education affirmed the benefits for a K-5/6-8 systemic model district-wide and approved funds to provide additional space to accommodate 6th grade students at Drake and Dunstan Middle Schools. The additions will be open for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a visible sign of the Board of Education’s commitment to the model.

What is the status of Creighton, Ken Caryl, and Summit Ridge Middle Schools?
Additions to Creighton, Ken Caryl, and Summit Ridge middle schools are designed and will be bid this fall to be complete for the 2019 - 20 school year.
