School District asks for community feedback on capacity and configuration issues

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Teton County School District (TCSD) recently released a survey with the goal of getting the community's feedback on capacity and configuration issues in local schools. "Over the past two years, a capacity study has been conducted by the state facilities department in order to help us make decisions as a community on which configuration we feel best meets our needs as a community and meets the needs of our students and the school district," said Superintendent Gillian Chapman in a recently released video . The survey asks for the community's opinion on three options to address the capacity issues in the local schools: - Option A: Building two new elementary schools - Option B: Building one new elementary school and doing additions to Colter Elementary and Wilson Elementary Schools - Option C: Building one new elementary school and doing additions to Wilson Elementary and the Jackson Hole Middle School. The survey also asks about the grade level configuration of local elementary schools to either kindergarten through fifth grade or kindergarten through sixth grade. Last, it asks about the configuration of the TCSD dual immersion program and whether or not they should turn Colter Elementary School into a dual magnet school, or if the program should be offered in "strands" at both Colter and Jackson Elementary Schools.
