The Redmond School District is almost finished with plans to offer more choices to middle school students through a new charter school next fall. They hope to have the final details worked out by Wednesday’s school board meeting. The middle school would be an expansion to the popular Redmond Proficiency Academy, and be housed in the soon-to-be empty Hartman building. Academy Director Michael Bremont says the School Board is supportive of plans to offer different options for students. KBND: “Do some students thrive in these smaller schools?”  Bremont: “Absolutely. Some students, there's much greater opportunity to build relationships with teachers, and they need to have that. Someone who really cares and really invests in them."  The Redmond Proficiency Academy is in downtown Redmond and is known for smaller classes, more freedom, and unique courses. The school will have about 180 students. They are currently taking registrations.
