Bakersfield City School District Board of Education approved a grade change at Pauly Elementary School.

The Board of Education moved to change the grades offered at Pauly Elementary from transitional kindergarten through fifth grade to transitional kindergarten through sixth grade, beginning with the 2018-2019 school year. 

The action was recommended due to the growing number of students being fed into Sequoia Middle School from Pauly Elementary School.

In order to reduce overcrowding at Sequoia Middle School, the sixth grade will be added at Pauly Elementary School so that fifth grade students can remain there.
