Although the district has one middle school — Ronald McNair at 2033 Pulgas Ave. in East Palo Alto — many sixth- through eighth-graders attend school on K-8 campuses.
Under the proposal, all other district schools — Belle Haven, Brentwood Academy, Costano Elementary, Los Robles and Willow Oaks — would encompass transitional kindergarten (TK) through fifth grade, according to the statement. Los Robles would continue as the district's Dual Immersion Magnet Academy but would shift to serve TK-5 students and move to the current Ronald McNair site.
Hernandez-Goff has emphasized that the district will not be moving forward with such a plan until a comprehensive outreach campaign is conducted with community members, parents and other stakeholders. Their feedback will be incorporated into the district's facilities master plan, she said.
"Even once the listening campaign is completed and stakeholder input is taken into account, it would still take several years to fully implement the initial reconfiguration concepts that are now being evaluated," she said in a statement.
Ravenswood will be working with One East Palo Alto's Youth Empowerment Strategies for Success (YESS) collaborative, facilitated by Executive Director Faye McNair-Knox, to conduct the outreach.
