Irvington Principal Announcement

Dear Families,
Currently a District Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) is hosting public sessions in order to get input about two boundary change scenarios that were released two weeks ago. In December and January, the committee will make a recommendation to the Superintendent as to which scenario should be presented to the Board of Education. 

Scenario #1 turns Irvington back to a K-5 school. We would take a number of students who currently attend Beverly Cleary. The Cleary/Fernwood site would then become a middle school and host our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. 

Scenario #2 has Irvington remaining the same- a K-8 school that feeds to Grant High School.

These changes would take place next year, the 2016-17 school year, in order to alleviate the overcrowding Beverly Cleary is currently experiencing. 

There are still some opportunities to give input in person or using social media. Here is a list of upcoming meetings:

Monday Nov. 23, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Markham K-5, 10531 SW Capitol Hwy. 

New Meeting: Monday Nov. 23, 7 pm to 9 pm, Lane Middle School, 7200 SE 60th Ave.

Ask questions, share your views: ppsgrows@pps.net

There are regular updates on the DBRAC website that can be found at: 

Regardless of what happens, I believe we will continue to be a united community with our students as a focus. Even with uncertainty in the air, our staff is focused on educating students and keeping the climate optimal for learning.
