While officials had originally planned to come forward this month with recommendations concerning possible grade reconfiguration at Canton schools, the committee studying the issue has determined it needs more time, Superintendent Kevin Case stated in an e-mail to parents this week.
The committee is looking at the pros and cons of aligning grades 3 to 5 at Canton Intermediate School and grades 6 to 8 at Canton Middle School.
In a past interview, Case said the most important aspects were academics and alignment with the common core state standards but added that many other issues come in to play.
While the committee now hopes to make a recommendation to Board of Education in June, Case stated that he would present a progress report at the board's meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
Parents are encouraged to attend and as with all board meetings can opt to provide input at the beginning of the meeting. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in Room B at the Canton Community Center.
Any recommended changes would be made in the 2014-2015 school year, Case stated in the message.
