ODESSA - A new strategic plan for ECISD could mean some changes for students.

The School Board adopted the plan at their meeting on Tuesday night.

Part of the plan calls for some grade restructuring.

Currently, sixth graders are part of the elementary system and ninth graders are in junior high.

But the new plan would send kids to middle school in their sixth grade year, and to high school their ninth grade year.

School officials tell NewsWest 9, nothing is concrete.

The board simply recommended that change and now the task force that came up with the plan will look at what it would take to make it a reality.
