SIXTH GRADE CONFIGURATION

On Thursday, February 15, 2018, the Ojai Unified School District Board of Education held a special board meeting to discuss the topic of the sixth grade moving to Matilija Junior High School. The Board has not yet made a decision on this topic. The meeting was informational and focused on the following topics: 1) a review of the 2014 sixth grade study committee process and recommendations; 2) the recent changes in curriculum and state standards and the impact on sixth grade; 3) the financial status of the district and enrollment projections; and 4) a discussion by Matilija administration on what the effect of continued declining enrollment would have on the campus. At the conclusion of these four presentations, the Board allowed time for public input. Any members of the community interested in learning more about this topic are encouraged to attend these important meetings held in the Boardroom at the District Office (414 E. Ojai Avenue).
