One of the first tasks the high school community will tackle is to put a plan together for renovations to the building. Teachers, students and parents will have the opportunity to examine the present facility and make recommendations for improvements.
Scotch Plains- Fanwood High School also will be working toward getting its accreditation renewed by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Each department is putting together action plans that will be reviewed by a visiting team of educators in March of 2000.
This year, Terrill Middle School is extending its use of block scheduling to seventh grade. Last year, the school introduced mini- block scheduling into certain sixth grade subject areas so that the students could enjoy expanded classes several times a week.
The school has also taken its former art room and turned it into a computer room, with 26 Apple units that are Internet accessible. In addition, a minicomputer room has been erected in the former drafting room that existed beside the wood shop.
School One, which houses kindergarten through fifth grade and is the home of the pre- kindergarten program for children with special needs and the magnet school for self- contained special education classrooms, is introducing some new curriculum elements this fall.
A new district- wide reading program will be integrated into language arts and writing. Another curriculum goal is to focus on social studies at each grade level, which will lead to a year- end analysis of the schools social studies program. The building also is expected to be hooked up to the Internet by the end of the school year.

Park Middle School is trying a modified block schedule in the sixth and seventh grades this year so that the students can have a chance to use exploratory classes. School staff will be watching how the block schedules work.
The sixth graders also will be using a new district- wide Language Arts program. As a whole academically, school staff will be reviewing the results of standardized tests and examining any weak areas that may need to be strengthened. In sports, Park Middle School will no longer have joint teams with Terrill Middle School for boys and girls soccer and basketball. Each school will instead have separate teams for both sports.
