Full speed ahead for Farmington's new school


Farmington’s proposed new school of choice took perhaps its biggest step toward reality this week, earning official approval from school board members.

Board members voted 4-2 to approve the school, which has been promoted as the purest realization of the district’s strategic plan. According to current plans the new school will do away with grade levels and allow students to advance at their own pace.
