Board of Education Updated on Possible Restructuring at South Middle School

Deputy Superintendent Lance Stout and Director of Curriculum and Staff Development Lana Evans gave a presentation Monday night to the Board of Education about different options that the district will likely have to take in restructuring South Middle School due to the school's struggles in making AYP and it being on the list of Schools on Improvement.

Stout said the direction the district takes may be different then originally planned due to some changes by President Barack Obama in the last two weeks in the field of education. Evans said the district will most likely have four different options when it comes to restructuring South.

The first option would be the Turnaround Model which would include replacing the principal, screening all existing staff and rehiring no more than 50 percent back.

The second option would be the Transformational Model which would include replacing the principal who led the school prior to commencement of the Transformation Model, and using rigorous, transparent, and equitable evaluation systems for teachers and principals that takes into account data and student growth as a significant factor as well as other factors.

The third option would be the Restart Model which would convert the school or close it and reopen it under a charter school operator.

The fourth option would be the School Closure Model which would completely close the school and students would have to attend another school.

Evans stated that the district will be working hard to find out if these are the options for South and what steps have to be taken to make a decision on which is the best choice. There is no set timetable on when a decision has to be made. However, the state will likely let the district know in the next month on how to move forward with one of the four options.

Evans also had each of the Literacy First Instructors address the board with a presentation on what their roles are. South Principal Gib Rito also gave a short report on his meetings with Joyce Carter who is an Implementation Coach for Literacy First.
