Treadwell Elementary and Middle will be the latest iZone (Innovation Zone) schools beginning in the 2013-2014 school year, which will operate as a special subset of the Unified School District. Treadwell Elementary and Middle will be a turnaround school meaning there will be vast faculty and staff changes. A new principal will be announced by the end of February and teachers will have to reapply.
So far we know that Treadwell will receive additional funding through a Student Improvement Grant (SIG), at least a $100,000 per school per year and will have an extended school day.
iZone is holding a community meeting at Treadwell Middle School Thursday February 7th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
There will be small break-out groups and a Q &A and the end. This is an opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns regarding the school transition.
