Meeting to focus on superintendent's Bluffton schools proposal

info@islandpacket.comSeptember 5, 2013 

Bluffton-area residents are invited to a special Beaufort County Board of Education meeting on Sept. 10. The meeting will focus on Superintendent Jeffrey Moss' recommendation to build two new Bluffton schools aimed at accommodating rapidly growing student enrollments.

The 6 p.m. meeting will be held in the auditorium at Bluffton High School.

At a recent meeting, Moss proposed a new elementary school to serve grades K-8 and a new combination middle/high school to serve grades 6-12. The facilities would be "schools of choice," and the curricula at both schools would be driven by the desires of parents and the community.

At next Tuesday evening's meeting, members of the public will be able to voice their opinions to Board members after the superintendent presents his recommendations.
