Elementary school changes in the works


School officials say that plans to change the grade levels in the two elementary schools have “not been set in stone.” School officials have launched a webpage,, which has the latest information about the proposed reconfiguration of the elementary grade levels. It also features an online form where parents can submit their questions and suggestions. School officials are seeking changes because the East Wareham Early Childhood Center is slated to be closed for the 2014-15 school year. One option is for the students in pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade to go to the Minot Forest Elementary School, and students in grades 2, 3, and 4 would attend the John W. Decas Elementary School. A second option would be for Students in grades K, 1, and 2 to attend Decas, and students in pre-K, 3, and 4 to attend Minot. A plan is expected to be in place by March 1. The next forum on the proposed reconfiguration is scheduled for Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Decas school.
