ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools

Planning for new grade spans continues

Updated November 4, 2014

Project teams and individual schools are continuing to plan for a smooth transition to new grade spans (PreK/K-5, 6-8, 9-12), beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.

Five project teams are addressing transition issues in the following areas: middle level programming, high school programming, high school facilities, technology, and human resources.

Middle Level Programming

The Middle Level Programming team is continuing its detailed planning in two key areas:

  1. Grade-level interdisciplinary teams (grade 6, grade 7 and grade 8) for instruction in math, science, social studies, and language arts (“house model” in which a team of teachers works with the same group of students), and
  2. Daily advisory with structured curriculum around college/career planning, social/emotional learning, and academic oversight.
