Families at Oasis Charter School are awaiting anxiously a decision by the trustees whether to continue with the middle grade programs.
In case you've missed the saga, here's a story I wrote about it last month. A quick summary: Principal Juanita Perea says she informed parents she wanted to eliminate 6, 7, and 8 grades starting next year to make room for a lab and transform the school into a Science, Technology, Math and Engineering program. Parent said they just learned of this plan in December, giving them no time to explore other options for the schooling of their children.
Trustees are expected to decide what to do with the higher grades at a meeting starting at 6 p.m. at the school.
