Trenton public school restructuring plan

Trenton public schools seal
The future of our children is heavily based in education. Last night, the Trenton public school system just approved a restructuring plan that makes different schools for elementary, middle and high school. This proposal was passed by a unanimous vote and will go into effect in the 2013-14 school year.

The purpose was to help eliminate over-population in the classrooms. It helps get the right resources to the right kids. It also, tries to give more consistency to special education student that have been known to bounce around the school system.

Here is what Children’s Futures board member, Rev. Toby Sanders, said about the plan in a Trenton Times article:

In 2004, under then-Superintendent James Lytle, the district shifted to a K-eight model, under the theory that students benefited from staying in the same school from kindergarten through eighth grade, but more importantly, to save the district money, board president the Rev. Toby Sanders said.

“We shifted to that for fiscal reasons and management reasons primarily and we have had six straight years of the nadir in our achievement being six through eight,” he said.

Here is how the new proposal breaks down:

Pre K- 5th grade:
Columbus Elementary School
Gregory Elementary School
Mott Elementary School
P.J. Hill Elementary School

Kindergarten – 3rd grade
Robbins Elementary School
Washington Elementary School

Kindergarten – 5th grade
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School
Franklin Elementary School
Grant Elementary School
Robeson Elementary School
Jefferson Elementary School
Monument Elementary School
Parker Elementary School
Wilson Elementary School

6th grade – 8th grade
Alternative School/Cadwalader School
Grace A. Dunn Middle School
Joyce Kilmer Middle School
Rivera Middle School

9th grade – 12th grade
Daylight/Twilight High School
Trenton Central High School – Main
Trenton Central High School – West
