See above for the final order that was issued today from Judge Haikala granting us the approval to move forward with the requested reconfigurations.  These will include the realignment of Brighton to a K-6, and the transfer of the 7th and 8th grade to Pleasant Grove High School and Hueytown Middle.  It will also allow for the reconfiguration of Pleasant Grove Middle, sending the 6th grade to Pleasant Grove Elementary School and the 7th and 8th grade will be reassigned to Pleasant Grove High School.

It will also allow for the realignment of Bagley into a K-4 school and the Corner School will become a 5-8 Middle School.   Lastly, with the vacated Pleasant Grove Middle School building this will allow us to start the Middle School IB Programme which has been long anticipated by many parents in the District.

We will begin immediately with moving forward with the necessary actions to have all this completed before school starts. Dr. Pouncey states, "I am confident that each school involved will help make this a smooth transition even though it is later than we had hoped.  Ultimately, today is a great day for the students that are affected by these changes which is Jefferson County's primary goal."
