Ann Arbor School Board Hears Preliminary Report On Additional High School Options
The Ann Arbor School Board hopes to find alternative options to make the district's high schools even better for a broader range of students. A group of high school leaders have studied more than a half dozen programs including magnet schools, blended classes, new technology programs, and others. They plan on presenting the school board with two or three concrete program ideas in January or February.
School Board president Deb Mexicotte says they hope the upcoming election year could help make some additional high school options possible thanks to additional funding.
Superintendent Jeanice Swift says there are some common themes of more personalized learning approaches and choices in all of the programs reviewed. She says the goal will be to find options that balance increased costs with attracting additional students.
