Colfax 6th, 7th, 8th grade to share schedule and teachers in 2017-2018 school year

COLFAX — Sixth graders at Colfax Elementary will have the same schedule as grades seven and eight beginning in the fall of the 2017-2018 school year and also will share some of the same teachers.

Yingst outlined the plan at the Colfax Board of Education’s May 15 meeting.
