Montessori decision likely at school board meeting 

After months of parents worrying whether general education students will be able to stay at Dr. William Cobb Elementary while a Montessori program expands, the school board will likely make that decision tonight.

The elementary school has two teaching programs – a general education one for pre-K-5 and a Montessori one expanding from pre-K-3 to K-5, however with the expansion there is really only room for one program.

Parents for months have questioned the fate of their children. The district responded with an FAQ sheet for parents.

But since the first round of applications have been turned in and assignment letters will be handed out in March, the school board is planning on making a decision about where the two teaching styles will reside.

The agenda has several other topics: appointments of the president and vice president while they readopt their polices, the possible renewal of Kipp Bayview Academy Charter that expires in July, approval of Public Enrichment Education Fund spending for 2010-2011 and more.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. at 555 Franklin St. Or you can show up at 5 p.m. for a rally to encourage more ethnic studies classes on high school campuses.
