School solution: all grades 6,7 going to Peasley, grade 8 to special GHS space

The Gloucester County School Board approved a plan to accommodate middle school students for the 2011-2012 school year during a special work session on April 27.

Under the plan, all eighth grade students will attend classes in modular units placed in a self-contained campus area located at Gloucester High School. All sixth and seventh grade students will continue to attend Peasley Middle School.
