Elementary Structure Discussed by Board of Education
The Beatrice Public Schools Board of Education met for a Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, February 26th. During the meeting, elementary administrators presented potential options for the configuration of the elementary buildings within the district. The options included:
- Option 1: Based on student numbers and Board policy, run 5 sections of 3rd grade and 6 sections of 2nd grade for the 2018-2019 school year. This would require movement of students.
- Option 2: Leave students in current buildings. This would require an additional staff member and costs associated with the new position.
- Option 3: Begin to reduce a building to a 1.5 section building and transition Paddock Lane to a 3 section building. This would require movement of students and staff.
- Option 4: Grade level buildings.
- Lincoln: Kindergarten- 2nd grade building (3 or 4 sections each depending on numbers)
- Stoddard: 3rd- 5th grade building (3 or 4 sections each depending on numbers)
- Paddock Lane: Kindergarten- 5th grade building (2 or 3 sections each depending on numbers)
