Students at A.M. Winn Elementary School likely won't be focused on learning Russian or Spanish anytime soon.
The school is required to change its format as part of a , and parents got an update on the possibilities at a Thursday morning meeting.
Sacramento City Unified School District Area Assistant Superintendent Mary Hardin Young said the school's "design team" has considered Waldorf-style, Russian-immersion, Spanish-immersion, International Baccalaureate, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and more.
The group of parents, teachers, staff and community members have also looked at the types of schools in the district with long waiting lists or that aren't available.
"We don't have the appropriate number of students [who speak Russian or Spanish] to have an immersion program," Hardin Young told a group of about 15 parents Thursday.
She said through the change, the school hopes to increase enrollment within and outside the district, as well as increase student achievement.
"There are some really good things happening at A.M. Winn, and we want to enhance them," Hardin Young said.
Next week the design team will visit a Waldorf-style elementary school in the district; that style and STEM are two front-runners, Hardin Young said. But no program could be put in place immediately, she said.
"No matter what we recommend for next year, it can't be fully implemented for next year," Hardin Young said. "Whatever recommendation we make to the board and they accept, it wlil take us some time to train up for it."
