TPS students head back to school
Toledo, OH -- Today marks the kick off to the new K-8 community school model. Today when students hop on the bus they could be heading to a brand new school or returning to their former elementary. The community school concept keeps students in their neighborhood elementary through eighth grade.
Superintendent Dr. Jerome Pecko proposed the idea last school year as a way to save money and spread the student population out over the district's schools. That means some students are now attending a school closer to their home, cutting down on the need for bussing because many students live within the two mile walking area. For others maybe entering 6th or 7th grade, they could be heading back to their elementary alma mater.
