Learning Cottages Leased at BTMS for One Year
Learning Cottages Leased at BTMS for One Year
Posted on 02/18/2020

At the February 18 school board meeting, the board approved the recommendation by the administration to lease two custom built learning cottages to accommodate the large rising sixth grade class at Banks Trail Middle School for the 2020–2021 school year. The facilities feature full restrooms, water fountains, closet and storage space, and will be outfitted with all standard classroom technologies including smart boards and wireless internet access.

This action was recommended by the administration to avoid moving current students to a different middle school while the construction of Forest Creek Middle School is completed. The lease of the learning cottages is for one year and is a temporary solution to allow current students to attend their assigned school.

This solution does not impact the current freeze at Banks Trail Middle School for new students moving to our area. The freeze on all Banks Trail grade levels will be evaluated at the end of the current school year. All students will attend their assigned schools beginning with the 2021–2022 school year when Forest Creek Middle School opens.
