1 Merger Study Grade Level Configurations Options and Rationale

2 The task… Upon review of facilities, instructional and programming needs, we developed options and made recommendations for grade level configurations Upon review of facilities, instructional and programming needs, we developed options and made recommendations for grade level configurations Educational Rationale – –Create and expand educational opportunities for students pre K-12 –Create and expand extracurricular (athletics, arts, clubs, etc) opportunities at age appropriate levels –Maximize available resources –Age appropriate grouping –Follow NYS divisions for developmentally appropriate curriculum (elementary, intermediate/middle, secondary)

3 Decision Making - considerations Facilities - Maintaining educational vitality in both communities Facilities - Maintaining educational vitality in both communities Efficient use of available resources Efficient use of available resources –Staffing & efficient use of teacher certification –Transportation –Building capacity

4 Option 1 –Not Recommended Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – MS/HS Section Combined 6-8 Wellsville – MS Building Combined 0 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K, 1,2,3,4,5 Scio Elementary Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,4,5

5 Reasons for Elimination –1 Capacity – not enough classroom space on Scio campus to fit 3 combined grades of over 380 in addition to elementary campus Capacity – not enough classroom space on Scio campus to fit 3 combined grades of over 380 in addition to elementary campus Scenario: Scenario: –Current Scio HS 9-12 population= 128 –Potential 6-8 combined population= 387

6 Option 2 – Not Recommended Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – MS/HS Section Combined 6-7 Wellsville – MS Building Combined 8 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K, 1,2,3,4,5 Scio Elementary Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,4,5

7 Reasons for elimination -2 Efficiency of teacher certification – limited flexibility (7 th grade isolated) Efficiency of teacher certification – limited flexibility (7 th grade isolated) Isolating one grade level 8 th (split 7 th & 8 th ) Isolating one grade level 8 th (split 7 th & 8 th ) Limited programming options Limited programming options Extracurricular limitations Extracurricular limitations

8 Option 3 – Not Recommended Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – HS/MS Section Combined 5-7 Wellsville – MS Building Combined 8 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K, 1,2,3,4 Scio Elementary Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,4

9 Reasons for Elimination - 3 Capacity – not enough space on Scio campus to fit 3 combined grades of over 376 in addition to elementary building Capacity – not enough space on Scio campus to fit 3 combined grades of over 376 in addition to elementary building Scio 9-12 departure = 128 Scio 9-12 departure = combined population = combined population = 376 Efficiency of teacher certification – limited flexibility (separation 7 th & 8 th ) Efficiency of teacher certification – limited flexibility (separation 7 th & 8 th ) Isolating one grade level 8 with (split 7 th & 8 th ) Isolating one grade level 8 with (split 7 th & 8 th ) Limited programming options Limited programming options Extracurricular limitations Extracurricular limitations

10 Option 4 – Not Recommended Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – HS Building 0 Wellsville – MS Building 6-8 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K, 1,2,3,4,5 Scio Elementary/ Middle Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,

11 Rationale for elimination -4 Met none of criteria Met none of criteria

12 Option 5 – Recommended for Consideration Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – MS/HS Building Combined 5-6 Wellsville – MS Building Combined 7-8 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K,1,2,3,4 Scio Elementary Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,4

13 Rationale – Option 5 Elementary population – neither campus has the capacity to combine the Pre K – 5 population Elementary population – neither campus has the capacity to combine the Pre K – 5 population Combine population at an appropriate developmental level (Grade 5) Combine population at an appropriate developmental level (Grade 5) Maintain middle level programming – on separate campuses Maintain middle level programming – on separate campuses Merged population – maximize course expansion, diversity of academic offerings, student activities, athletics (Separate Campuses 5 th /6 th & 7 th /8 th ) Merged population – maximize course expansion, diversity of academic offerings, student activities, athletics (Separate Campuses 5 th /6 th & 7 th /8 th )

14 Option 6 – Recommended for Consideration Scio-Wellsville CSD Scio – HS/MS Building Combined 0 Wellsville – MS Building Combined 6-8 Wellsville HS Building Combined 9-12 Wellsville Elementary Building Pre-K,K, 1,2,3,4,5 Scio Elementary Building Pre-K, K, 1,2,3,4,5

15 Rationale Option 6 Middle Level programming – provide 3 year continuity prior to high school Middle Level programming – provide 3 year continuity prior to high school 6-8 configuration developmentally appropriate 6-8 configuration developmentally appropriate New BOE to consider options of how to maintain educational vitality (enrollment balance) in both elementary schools New BOE to consider options of how to maintain educational vitality (enrollment balance) in both elementary schools

16 Athletic Facilities It is evident that the athletic and recreational facilities on both Scio and Wellsville campuses will need to be utilized in order to maintain and support existing programs and new opportunities It is evident that the athletic and recreational facilities on both Scio and Wellsville campuses will need to be utilized in order to maintain and support existing programs and new opportunities  School day use  Before and after-school use  Community use
