After months of discussion, the Duval County School Board approved the plan to turnaround the district’s struggling middle schools.
Board members voted unanimously to approve the highly-touted middle school reform plan.
“A lot of times, the kids get lost in middle school so part of this is individualizing the kids, making them feel like someone really cares about them,” School Board Chairwoman Grymes said. “It’s a tough time for kids. Middle school kids are very confused.”
