Dear Eckstein Community—
At the end of last week we were informed of a decrease in staffing due to our enrollment numbers. Our enrollment is lower than what was anticipated so Eckstein will be losing .5 FTE.
To accommodate this decrease we will be combining some classes within our electives. In addition to changes in electives, we will be making changes to math classes based on the fall assessment given last week. To minimize the impact, our counselors will be working to make all changes and the balancing of classes this week. Starting tomorrow students will be informed of any changes by their grade level counselor.
We are truly sorry for the disruption. We know that students have already made connections with teachers and classmates. Our wonderful Eckstein teachers work closely on curriculum and instruction alignment so I am confident that the transition will be smooth.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Principal Eckstein MS
