JACKSON - The Jackson County Central Board of Education will host a public meeting about its “grade-alike” proposal before making an official vote.

According to JCC Superintendent Todd Meyer, the JCC school board postponed its vote pending a 6 p.m. Dec. 12 public meeting at the JCC Middle School Auditorium in Lakefield. The public meeting will feature a presentation on the grade-alike concept by JCC administration followed by a question-and-answer time to allow the public to ask questions and provide input, Meyer said. Action will be considered at the board’s Dec. 17 meeting.

The proposal in question - as recommended by a task force comprised of individuals residing in locations across the county - is to educate the district’s kindergarten through third-grade students at Riverside Elementary in Jackson and its fourth- and fifth-grade students at Pleasantview Elementary in Lakefield beginning fall 2019.
