This project originated from an interest in the Johnson Primary School community to have a third grade at Johnson. The change would increase enrollment in Johnson and should have positive impacts on academic performance because students would not transition from Johnson to Lawrence in 3rd grade, the year they take the AzMERIT state assessments. This would allow Johnson to have an AzMERIT grade. Johnson has sufficient capacity to serve the additional students.
Lawrence would also have a third grade but at a reduced level of enrollment.
