Come fall 2019, the Beverly Hills Unified School District is set to include a dedicated middle school following Tuesday’s 3-0 vote to move ahead with a plan to reconfigure the district’s century-old education model.
The approved plan, which was presented to the community at a formal board meeting by Superintendent Michael Bregy, designated Beverly Vista to become the site of the newly created consolidated middle school for students grades 6-8.
“The time for this transition is long overdue; the time for courage and commitment by the members of this Board of Education is now,” said board member Mel Spitz, who previously served two terms on the board in the 1970s. “This district’s mission is to inspire and enable each student to achieve academic excellence. We cannot achieve that mission without a dedicated middle school.”
