POMEROY — The School Board will hold a community forum 7 p.m. Monday to consider moving sixth-grade classes to the district’s high school.
Kindergarten through sixth grade is currently taught in the elementary school, with grades seven-12 housed in the high school.
Pomeroy Superintendent Doug LaMunyan said the district is considering moving sixth-graders to allow their teachers to teach additional courses at the high school.
“Looking at out staffing scenarios and people teaching what they’re teaching right now, there’s a possibility of opening up some curriculum offerings at the high school,” he said.
Sixth-graders also compete with seventh- and eighth-graders in district athletics.
LaMunyan said the district hoped to gauge community member responses at the meeting before proceeding with any decision.
A regular school board meeting will follow the forum.
