RHINELANDER - Rhinelander parents have waited a month for the Rhinelander School Board to decide whether the 4K program would move to Rhinelander High School this fall.
Tonight, the operations committee decided to keep 4K students at their current locations, Pelican and Crescent Elementary schools.
But moving the program to the high school is still an option for the future.
The district's 4K program is overcrowded, and maintaining double classrooms is only a temporary solution.
"Tonight was a great example for citizens to see their board in action," said superintendent Roger Erdahl. "How cautious they really are, and how important public comment and a thoughtful process is to all of them. They took their time, they shifted through all their options, they chose one that's going to give us a little more time to think even further."
Options up for consideration include moving students to the high school or YMCA, installing portable classrooms, or shifting all grades up a building.
