Muskogee Public Schools are thinking outside the box — literally — when it comes to considering plans for the future of the district. A long-range planning committee appointed by the school board has been considering ideas that would rearrange which grades attend school at which buildings, and completely rethink how middle schoolers learn.

“None of this is in the plan stage yet,” said Steve Braun, director of public relations at the district. “At this point, they’re trying to get a feel for these ideas; nothing is set in stone.”

The idea being considered would:

  • Move preschoolers out of the current Early Childhood Center to the Harris-Jobe location
  • Move the sixth grade out of elementary schools and to the current Grant Foreman location
  • Move the seventh and eighth grades out of Alice Robertson to Ben Franklin’s current location
  • Move ninth graders out of the high school and to the current Alice Robertson location.

“The thought behind moving sixth-graders out of the elementary schools is there’s a big difference between kindergartners and sixth-graders,” Braun said. “It would allow them to have a school tailored more to their needs.”

Seventh- and eighth-graders would move to a “teaming” model, where groups of 120 students would attend four groups of classes together, which would allow a greater sense of community among the students.

The planning committee is currently investigating the possibilities and working to have solid ideas ready by spring break, possibly as early as February.

“Nothing is set in stone,” Braun stressed. “They’re trying to get a feel for what people think about it and how it would work.”
