Currently, the Board of Trustees supports the concept of chronological, heterogeneous grouping for students within the school district. That is, children of a specific age are placed in a grade level irrespective of other influencing factors such as achievement, size, etc. However, within grade levels, teachers—after diagnostic analysis of a child—can plan and use homogeneous grouping to facilitate learning by the students. Also, inter-classroom grouping may be used to facilitate learning experiences and provide for individual differences among students. All grouping accommodations must be approved by the superintendent of schools.
It is the desire of the district personnel and administration to develop curriculum and materials to move towards a continuous progress curriculum which will allow students to progress through subject areas according to their own pace and competency, kindergarten through 12th grade.
