Here’s a question/rumor we’ve heard recently:
Will the Mosaic Program continue into sixth grade if the referendum is approved?
Yes. Central Middle School currently has 6th grade students who transition from Mosaic to 7th grade and they are automatically enrolled in Advanced English, Social, Science and Math classes. These courses were specifically designed for students in the Mosaic program. We anticipate that 6th grade students coming from Mosaic would have advanced classes as well, but in a secondary setting (where they change teachers for every period). The same level of rigor would be maintained. There would also be some additional choices for 6th grade students with their exploratory classes, which is part of the secondary school experience.
Should voters approve the referendum, we would further develop this plan in order to be sure we continue to meet the needs of Mosaic students. We would have two years to plan the transition for all 6th graders to CMS, and that planning will include Mosaic.
