OKEMOS— Kinawa 5-6 school in Meridian Township is making more changes. Just one year after moving fifth grade into the middle schools, a new curriculum was presented at the March 12 Okemos School Board meeting by Kinawa Principal John Hood. The new curriculum was approved at the March 26 school board meeting.
Starting in the 2012-2013 school year, Kinawa Middle School will have only seven school periods each day instead of eight. Other changes include the option to opt out of music in the sixth grade.
These changes will increase costs by $52,000 from the 2011-2012 school year.
