Bullet #1: Move 6th through 8th grade students from Northside K-8 to Warren County Middle School. Bullet #2: Effective 2022-23 school year.

Why is the district considering consolidating middle schools?

1. Equity

Provide all middle school students access to the same course offerings and extracurricular opportunities.

Currently, Northside students do not have the same access as Warren County Middle students.


  • Advanced academic courses

  • Career and technical education courses (CTE)

  • Elective courses

  • The internationally acclaimed "Leader In Me" program coming to Warren County Middle School

  • Space Force JROTC

  • Sports

  • Band

  • Clubs

2. Efficiency

Operate our schools and district as efficiently as possible

  • Smaller Class sizes
    This will create smaller class sizes at Warren County Middle than students are currently experiencing at Northside in core subject areas like math, science, english/language arts, and social studies. The core subject class sizes at Warren County Middle will remain mostly unchanged from current class sizes.

  • Financial savings
    The consolidation uses our staffing resources more efficiently, requiring one less middle school teacher

  • Improve staffing
    Reduces staffing challenges associated with teachers at Northside having to teach multiple grade levels and having to create multiple lesson plans every day

3. Support

Help all middle school students learn developmentally appropriate levels of independence and self-reliance required in high school

  • Opportunities to learn social skills and time management skills in a true middle school environment, where students change classes throughout the day

  • The Warren County Middle school counselor only serves the middle school, with experience, focus, and training on meeting the unique social, emotional, and academic needs of middle schoolers
