Tebbano fundamentally denies these notions, saying there was no "miscalculation," and "there is no truth that this class will stay together all through elementary school."
"The enrollment at Clarksville is not the result of a miscalculation and it is not because of redistricting," he said. "Enrollment at Clarksville was slightly higher this year than projected during redistricting and next year it's projected to be lower, so these numbers change all the time it's not an exact science."
The district held an informational session at Clarksville on Thursday, June 4, to discuss the situation with parents and make a presentation on multi-age classrooms, which Tebbano said was attended by 20 or 30 people.
The board of education will be discussing the matter at its Wednesday, June 17, meeting at 7 p.m. The board will be looking at the possibility of having three schools in the district provide multi-age classes next year. Two of district schools currently have a multiage classroom this year.
