Six students can move early

The new attendance boundaries will cause some students to attend one school in 2019-20 and switch to another in 2020-21. Among those are six sixth-graders who would attend Badger Ridge Middle School this fall but have to move to Savanna Oaks Middle School for seventh grade. The board agreed at its June 25 meeting to allow all of them to move a year early. Board members agreed it was a small enough cohort that it was important to allow them the option. The 48 students who would have the same problem with the schools switched – starting at SOMS and going to BRMS – will not be allowed to move early, as that number of students would cause enrollment problems at Badger next year, principal Alan Buss previously told the board.
