State Gives Green Light to Restructuring Crisfield High School


            Somerset County officials say they got the official okay to restructure Crisfield High School.

            But the State Department of Education still wants some clarification on the plan about staffing and class schedules.

            The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the state also wants more input from the stakeholders since many of the previous public meetings focused on consolidation of two high schools.

            Once the plan is in place for Crisfield school officials said they hope to implement some of the same changes at Washington High School in Princess Anne which has also not met the academic standards\ required by the federal government.

            Both schools will likely see replacement of all or most of the school staff including the principal.
