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)
