MASON CITY – Considerable thought and planning has been underway in the Mason City Community School District to ensure that students have appropriate and conducive learning environments during the renovations of the current John Adams Middle School building. In order to meet these requirements we will re-locate our 7th and 8th grade students to separate buildings beginning in the fall of 2011. The former elementary school will serve seventh graders for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years.

The former Madison Building will be used as a “swing school” and will now be known as John Adams Middle School 7th. John Adams Middle School 7th will house our incoming 7th grade students and faculty for the 2011-2012 school year. This site will also be used for the same purpose during the 2012-2013 school year for those incoming 7th grade students to accommodate the renovation at the high school. 8th grade students and faculty will move into John Adams Middle School 8th, a 14 classroom annex on the Mason City High School Campus for the 2011-2012 school year with exploratory classes being available in the existing high school building. By utilizing existing buildings (Madison and Mason City High School) the district is able to dedicate more construction dollars to the renovation needs on the secondary campus. The current John Adams building is slated to be completed by the beginning of school, August, 2012.

Transition planning teams are in place at John Adams Middle School for both 7th and 8th grade and a District Transition Monitoring Team will be in place by mid-February to track/monitor the changes and transitions during these various construction projects as well as the needs of students, families and staff. Check the Construction Page on the Mason City Community School District web site for updated information on all projects.
