Douglas Elementary Schools Will Be Reorganized in 2017

Badger Clark and Francis Case Elementary Schools will function as one building beginning next fall, reports KOTA TV News. The schools are currently set up with kindergarten through first grade operating in Badger Clark and second and third grades operating in Francis Case. In 2017, the schools will work as one, with kindergarten through third grades in both buildings.

With the arrangement, students will face fewer transitions before reaching middle school and teachers will have more time to get to know their students and families. The Douglas School District has approved the changes, which were initially brought up during a faculty retreat.
