Sweeping middle school changes that would trade the current 53-minute classes for 75-minute classes for core subjects, add 25-minute intervention/study hall/electives sessions, rejuvenate the electives selection and lengthen the school day 10 minutes were unveiled to the Muskego-Norway School Board on Monday night.
The district's 38-member Middle Level Program Review Team worked 11 months on reviewing the two middle schools to develop the recommendations. The team consists of parents, teachers, administrators and even one student. It held meetings, did surveys and delved into educational research to see how the best middle schools get results.
The recommendations are headed for discussion and possibly board approval Dec. 5. Except for the new electives, the plan would start next fall. It would call for no additional staff.
