It would mean some schools that are currently K-through-sixth-grade would become K-through-eighth grade. And middle schools that have seventh and eighth graders would start to include sixth graders.

Trinette Marquis is the district’s spokeswoman. She says the district has slashed its budget by $38 million because of state funding cuts over the last three years.

“…and with the governor’s preliminary proposal, that would be another $6.6 million just for Twin Rivers schools. So what we’re trying to do is get out ahead of these budget cuts. We know that it’s not going to be looking good anytime soon and we’ve got to start consolidating our programs and school sites.”

Tuesday night's board meeting will be at the district office in North Highlands. It starts at 6:30. Board members are expected to vote on the consolidation plan on February 16th.
