Red Wing School Board members finalized grade configurations for the 2022-2023 academic year during the March 7 meeting, voting to accept the administration team's recommendation to have two elementary grade centers, a middle school and a high school.
The configuration will be:
Colvill Family Center --- early childhood
Sunnyside -- kindergarten and first grade plus a few early childhood classes.
Burnside -- grades 2-4
Twin Bluff Middle School -- grades 5-7
Red Wing High School -- grades 8-12
Elementary Principals Mike Pagel and Jen Grove explained that building space constraints combined with the need to provide comprehensive student services made this configuration the best for next year. Board members called this a transition plan, stating their intention to move toward a 6-8 middle school and having grade 5 in an elementary setting in the near future.
