Monday, March 5th at 7 pm at the Nauset Regional Middle School auditorium
Parents of current and incoming students at Nauset Regional Middle School are urged to attend a meeting on Monday, March 5th at 7 pm at the Nauset Regional Middle School auditorium which is devoted to discussion of the recent decision by Principal Maxine Minkoff to eliminate advanced classes for current 6th graders.
The decision not to implement them was made unilaterally by Dr. Minkoff without consulting or informing the parents.The format of the hour-long meeting will be 20 minutes of a panel discussion by Superintendent Richard Hoffman and Principal Minkoff regarding their decision, followed by a questions from the audience.
Local parents are concerned because they say that the decision to eliminate all advanced classes in the 6th grader contradicts what they were told earlier in the year: that advanced classes would be implemented, and that the decision not to implement them was made unilaterally by Dr. Minkoff without consulting or informing the parents.
Drs. Hoffman and Minkoff have stated that the decision was made based on research supporting the effectiveness of mixed ability classrooms with differentiated instruction.
