After months of study and community engagement, the ISD 279 School Board has approved Supt. Kate Maguire's recommendation to reconfigure grade spans to PK/K-5, 6-8, 9-12 beginning in 2015-16. 

The recommendation includes a plan to gain the additional space needed to accommodate 9th graders in high school by building additions and repurposing space at each of the three comprehensive high schools – Maple Grove Senior High, Osseo Senior High, and Park Center Senior High.
