The Davis Enterprise ran a story Friday that explores the possibility of moving Davis's ninth graders from the district's junior high schools over to Davis High School.
The move is being discussed by the Davis School Board, with all of the trustees saying they're interested in hearing more about the pros and cons, according to Enterprise reporter Jeff Hudson's story:
"[Trustee Tim] Taylor argued that there would be academic and budgetary benefits if ninth-graders were reassigned to DHS," writes Hudson.
He then quotes Cathy Haskell, former president of the Davis Teachers Association, as saying "we feel like it is crowded (now). We have giant class sizes, and we can’t shift kids into other classes (because they are full)."
