We will determine a plan for a feeder middle school and for STRIVE Prep Montbello, whether they are located on or off Montbello campus.
DPS has explored different timelines for opening the new Montbello high school and feeder middle school, and have determined that we will launch the schools in fall 2022. This gives us time for an extensive school design process with the community, time to hire high-quality leaders and staff, and to allow time for facility planning.
We will begin the hiring process for two principals this winter, one for the comprehensive high school and one for the feeder middle school on the Montbello campus. We will involve the community in each of the hiring processes. School leaders will be given a full year and a half of collaborative school design planning time with the community.
