Grade Level Instructional Realignment

 

Proposed Grade Level Instructional Alignment 

 

As part of the bond package, WSISD will undergo a grade level instructional realignment that will effect the elementary, intermediate and middle school campuses. The changes would increase capacity at ALL elementary schools and begin in 3 to 5 years. 

The proposed grade level realignment will strengthen the kindergarten through fifth grade curriculum alignment in all subjects and create a stronger foundation for students as they transition to the middle school starting in sixth grade. The alignment would allow elementary age students to only transition to a new school one time. Currently, students change schools from elementary to intermediate and from intermediate to middle school. This would result in one transition—from elementary to the Sixth Grade Center.

Sixth Grade Center

  • The bond package includes the creation of a 6th Grade Center that will provide more flexibility in scheduling that results in additional support for student growth academically and socially. 

  • The 6th Grade Center will now serve as the bridge from elementary to middle school and better prepare 6th graders for athletics, fine arts and CTE programs.
    • Shared staffing at the middle school level will result in additional Fine Arts, Pre-Athletic and Career and Technical Education (CTE) opportunities in sixth grade. 
    • This increased exposure at a younger age will enable sixth graders to explore their interests and learn how to balance the rigor of academics and extracurricular opportunities.
    • More targeted instruction in fine arts, athletics and CTE will better prepare students to compete and excel at the middle school and high school levels.
