School Board Considers Grade Configuration Change in Mackenzie
Prince George, B.C. – A big change may be in store for grade seven students in Mackenzie.
The Prince George School Board’s Education Programs and Planning Committee has recommended that the Board approve a change in the grade configuration of Morfee Elementary to enrol grades kindergarten to grade six and a change in configuration at Mackenzie Secondary to enrol grades seven to 12.
The proposed changes would go into effect in time for the 2017-2018 school year.
Principals of the two schools, students, staff and parents have all been consulted on the matter.
The district says a similar program is in its fourth year of operation at Nechako Valley Secondary School in Vanderhoof.
The matter will be debated at the Board’s monthly meeting in Prince George tonight. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
