Oysterponds Elementary School officials are expected to give a presentation about the district’s combined-grades program at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

The pre-K through sixth-grade district in Orient re-organized its academic structure this school year by combining grade levels:

• Pre-K and kindergarten are now primary 1

• Grades 1 and 2 are now primary 2

• Grades 3 and 4 are now intermediate 1

Each class has multiple teachers and assistants, including literacy, math and enrichment specialists, as well as a technology teacher assistant.
