At this point, the group has fulfilled the original study directive.At this point, the group has fulfilled the original study directive.

8 Executive Summary While both of the options have merit and would meet the parameters of the initial board directive, they also each have some negatives…The Study Group genuinely recognizes the challenges of increasing enrollment and the need to meet that challenge, but were unwilling to commit to either of these options as a final recommendation. As chairman of this committee, I submit both of these options to you along with supporting documentation as the best thinking of the Secondary Enrollment and Facilities Study Group…Should the board change the directive or desire the Study Group to reconvene to pursue another avenue, we stand willing to do so. Tommy Boggs, Committee Chairman

27 Transition Staffing for the new school will utilize a process that allows for as much choice as possible. Staff (full representation) will be involved in a transparent process well in advance of the school opening that will review past staff transitions - what’s worked well and what was problematic.

28 Transition Will there be a transition plan to move students to the new school over a period of time (Ex. - 6th grade start one year, seventh grade and sixth the next year, …) or will the move be done by all grades all in one year? Will there be "grandfathering" of students into DHS and/or DMS who have been attending these schools but become zoned for the new school? If so, will this be open to all or program availability based? Will capacity apply? Will a lottery be used or stand in line for prioritization? Students

29 Transition Where, in the priority list, would high school/middle school OOZ/OOD students who are wanting to participate in programs/athletics not offered at the school where they are zoned be placed? Will there be any priority or "grandfathering" students presently attending DHS/DMS who are zoned to another school over new OOZ/OOD requests? Will the same process be used for applications for OOZ/OOD status for secondary schools as is used for Kindergarten (standing in line to get earliest time stamp) or will another method be used (Ex. - Lottery)? Students

31 Sustain Students Will the same process be used for applications for OOZ/OOD status for the new school as is used for Kindergarten (standing in line to get earliest time stamp) or will another method be used (Ex. - Lottery)? Will a criteria be used for determining what extramural sports and activities will be offered? Will school attendance zones be adjusted on a regular basis in order to maintain a smaller enrollment at any of the schools, if needed?
