Change is on the way for some students in Clovis and where they go to school. The Clovis School Board of Education voted Tuesday night and made a unanimous decision to split up certain grade levels. Starting fall 2007, Gattis Junior High will be for 9th graders only. Marshall and Yucca Junior High will be for 7th and 8th graders. Officials with the school board say all three junior highs are on academic probation on a state level. They hope the changes will make their schools less crowded and improve their academic standing. While many school employees say this should benefit the students, some parents requested more research be done before school officials voted, claiming the change would do more harm than good.
