Anchorage 6th graders staying put

Anchorage sixth graders are not moving schools. The Anchorage School Board voted on Monday to keep the school structure the same. Currently, some sixth graders are housed in elementary schools while others are in middle schools. The district had considered making sixth grade placement consistent for all students. But, after surveying the community and analyzing the costs of changing the structure, the administration decided it’s best to keep the schools as they are. All but one school board member voted in favor of maintaining the status quo.
