SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – The Sebring Board of Education voted to move sixth graders from B.L. Miller Elementary School to Sebring McKinley Junior/Senior High School.

The move was approved during its meeting on Monday.

The district plans to introduce a new science and math curriculum to sixth, seventh and eighth-grades during the 2019-2020 school year. Placing sixth-grade inside the junior high school will make it easier for students to participate in the classes, according to Superintendent Toni Viscounte. 

“The move is what we feel is best for our students,” said Viscounte. “This is strictly an educational decision and was not influenced by finances.”

The Sebring Board of Education hosted a committee meeting on April 1 to hear public feedback on the proposal.
