Eich Intermediate School is hosting a series of parent information nights about the school’s planned transition to an International Baccalaureate campus.

School and district staff will discuss the IB Middle Years Program, new electives such as foreign language and visual and performing arts, and a college and career readiness plan.

In March 2012, the Roseville City School District board of trustees voted to close Sierra Gardens Elementary School at the end of the current school year to address declining enrollment. As part of this plan, Eich will turn into a sixth through eighth grade middle school and offer the prestigious IB program.

All information nights take place from 6-8 p.m. in the Eich gymnasium, 1509 Sierra Gardens Drive in Roseville. Meetings will be held Tuesday, Feb. 12, Tuesday, Feb. 26, and Wednesday, Feb. 27. For more information, call (916) 771-1770.
