San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District Board of Trustees to look into Montessori program
February 06, 2014, 05:00 AM

The San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District Board of Trustees is voting on convening a planning group to provide for more opportunities for Montessori instruction for K-8 students in the 2015-16 school year.

The board is exploring various options to have the district’s Montessori programming put on one campus. North Shoreview and Parkside elementary schools both operate Montessori programs.

It will also vote on moving Parkside, which is currently operating two programs — a Montessori and a traditional school — to one single theme.

Last year, parent opposition to transforming Parkside into a science, technology, engineering and math program school caused the district to backpedal on its decision to make the change. There has been some concern expressed by parents, who still believe the district is trying to phase out the Montessori program in favor of STEM grant money. Parent Rick Nava said he thinks the consolidation of the Montessori programs for one single, bigger one is being presented under that pretext, but the district is aiming to eliminate it. Nava said he doesn’t trust the district will follow through.

The board is meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6 at the district office board room, 1170 Chess Drive in Foster City.
