Columbia Public Schools Shuffle Teachers
COLUMBIA -Some teachers in Columbia got assigned to a new school on Tuesday. The new assignments come as school officials get set to open Battle High School in the fall of 2013.
Along with a new high school, changes will be made to the current middle school and junior high system. Middle schools will serve students in 6th-8th grade, leaving the high schools to serve students in 9th-12th grade.
In December, Columbia Public Schools began asking teachers their preferences, in an electronic survey.
Letters including information on the teacher's status for the 2013-2014 school year, have been signed and should be sent out in the next few days.
