Our school district is seriously considering reconfiguring our elementary and middle schools and changing them from K-5 and 6-8 to K-6 and 7-8. There is going to be major upheaval among the 6th grade middle schools teachers if they end up having to leave middle school and go to elementary sites to teach a self-contained class. Currently, 6th grade teachers either teach a language arts/social studies core or math/science core. The kids also have a P.E. teacher and an electives teacher. Our district is contemplating this change to save money and get rid of teachers. What is considered middle school in your district?
