There will be plenty of new faces in new places next year in Youngstown City Schools.
Starting in the fall, seventh and eighth graders on the College Career Pathways will attend either East or Chaney High School.
Students and parents toured the East campus on Monday night.
Building leaders said the younger students will be on a different bell schedule, and wear different uniforms than the upper classmen. Seventh and eighth graders will also have to adjust to some new security measures, such as wearing ID badges, and entering the building through a metal detector.
“We also have three police officers that are at the metal detectors. We issue clear book bags to all students, that way the officers can see right inside the book bags and it takes less time digging through everybody else’s book bag,” said Holly Seimetz, East High School Principal.
Seventh and eighth graders who will attend Chaney High School in the fall can walk through that campus with their parents Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m.
There will also be an orientation in August for all seventh and eighth graders in the Youngstown school district.
