Melanie Lekocevic reports in the Greene County News the Coxsackie-Athens school district will hold public forums on a proposed elementary reconfiguration, 6:30 p.m. Mon., Jan. 12 at the E.J. Arthur Elementary School in Athens, and on Tue., Jan. 13 at the Coxsackie Elementary School. The proposal -- similar to one abandoned after one year in the Cairo-Durham district -- would house kindergarten through second grade at E.J. Arthur in Athens, and the third and fourth grades at Coxsackie Elementary in Coxsackie. There is no cost savings projected, but “teachers will have more opportunities to work together with their grade-level team to plan for students’ needs,” District Superintendent Randall Squier said. “Teachers can share resources, work together to differentiate instruction, and analyze information about student learning to discern patterns across the entire grade.” Read the full story in the Greene County News.
