Sandusky Schools is set to announce today the next step in its transformation plan: The Regional Center for Advanced Academic Studies.
The advanced academic studies academy will be a full-time school for gifted students from Sandusky and from surrounding districts. It will be located in the former Jackson Junior High School building, at Jackson and West Madison streets.
“Our interest is in serving the needs of students,” superintendent Eugene Sanders said Monday. “In the 21st century, public education is a competitive world now. We’ve got to maintain that competitive edge.”
District officials plan to announce more details at a news conference today at the board office on Decatur Street. They plan to open the new center for the upcoming school year.
