Plans are being explored to create a K-8 campus between Mitchell Elementary School and Scarlett Middle School in Ann Arbor through a partnership between the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the University of Michigan School of Education. A balanced school year calendar is being considered that could include a shorter summer break and “inter-session” breaks for academic enrichment or vacations at intervals throughout the year.

To date, two parents forums have been held to offer basic information on the partnership and encourage discussion in small groups to generate ideas and raise pertinent questions.  In addition to being posted online, feedback from the forums will be reported at  the Dec. 8 Board of Education meeting.
