Students at Fairview Elementary are being switched into different classrooms halfway through the school year.

There’s a public hearing  Tuesday for two Monroe County Schools labeled as failing. Fairview and Highland Park each received F’s from the state in 2013. Fairview also received an F in 2012.

The state requires schools that receive F’s to hold public hearings. MCCSC Director for Schools, Beverly Smith says the district is also working with the state to develop an improvement plan.

“When I say the state I’m talking about the Indiana Department of Education, to come up with plans to address the low grades and the low achievements and we will be talking about that tomorrow night. There will be presentations from both principals, as well as a chance for public comment”

The meeting starts at 7 o’clock Tuesday night.

Although Fairview and Highland Park individually received F’s, the MCCSC district overall received an A grade in 2013.
