Monona 6th graders moving to Cottage Grove


WKOW (WKOW) -- 6th graders in Monona will now be going to school in Cottage Grove.

The Monona Grove School Board approved the move 6 to 1.

Around 50 6th graders from Winnequah will now go to school at Glacial Drumlin in Cottage Grove.

That's where Monona 7th and 8th graders already go.

The district's superintendent says its an efficiency issue that puts all middle schoolers under on roof.

Many parents at the school board meeting opposed the plan, saying moving students out of Monona sends a message that the city has no good schools.
