School configuration meeting tonight, March 19

The Lebanon Community School District board will meet at 7 p.m. tonight, March 19, at the Santiam Travel Station, 750 S. Third St.

A memo from LCSD Superintendent Rob Hess included in the board meeting packet lists three options for K-6 configuration in the 2018-19 school year.

Hess recommends the second option, “grow the K-6 model at that elementary schools through parent choice.”

This option, he said, would allow the district “to manage the next two years of large sixth-grade classes and at the same time continue to pilot the K-6 model.”

The options listed are to make all in-town elementary schools K6 for the next school year or to keep the current school configurations in place.
