JACKSON HOLE, WYO — Teton County School District Board of Trustees eliminated 6th grade at the Alta Elementary, reconfiguring the school to now serve K-5 students beginning with the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.
The decision came at the board’s regularly scheduled meeting May 8. The week prior to the vote members of the board, along with Superintendent Gillian Chapman visited Alta Elementary to discuss the issue with families, get input and answer questions.
The vote was taken after much public comment and board discussion. The recommendation to reconfigure the school was based on enrollment trends and equity between TCSD elementary schools, with an emphasis on providing all 6th grade students common curriculum, activities and programming opportunities.
