An elementary school just east of Rosemont this year under an agreement to change its format, and this week parents will get a peek at some of the possibilities for its future.
Parents at will receive an update from its "design team" at a 9:15 a.m. meeting on Thursday in the cafeteria.
Principal Michael Kast said the group, which has about a dozen people at each of its weekly meetings, has considered many possible formats for the school: Waldorf-style, Russian-immersion, Spanish-immersion, International Baccalaureate, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and more.
"[It will be] good for community to be able to offer a different option than what's here," Kast said. "The more variety, the better fit you'll be able to offer all people."
Kast said he hopes the format chosen for the school will help to attract more students to the school, including some from outside the Sacramento City Unified School District.
He said he hopes the design team will be able to choose a preferred format by the end of the school year, but said he wasn't yet sure what that would be.
"There's no telling what [the] program is going to be," Kast said.
The design team will also present an update at the district's Board of Education meeting Thursday night.
