— Beloit's superintendent says a reconfiguration of the grades could be good for students and good for the district's finances.

Superintendent Steve McNeal says there could be academic benefits to putting pre-kindergarten through third graders in the elementary schools and fourth through eighth graders in intermediate schools.


He says the grade reconfiguration could allow the district to use its staff more efficiently.


The proposal could be part of a referendum the school board is considering. The referendum would pay for facilities maintenance and would not involve a tax increase because the district's debt on the high school is about to retire.


McNeal says he expects public meetings on the proposal to be scheduled soon.
