Responding to public outcry at last week’s special meeting, the Morongo Unified School District Board of Ed last night fast tracked a policy revision on athletic eligibility. The move clears the way for five football players from Twentynine Palms High School to rejoin the team now that each has successfully completed a makeup elective course. And at an earlier workshop session on class size reduction, the board adopted a 24:1 student/teacher ratio for grades K through 3 and approved the hiring of eight additional teachers, two each at Oasis and Onaga Elementary Schools, and one each at Twentynine Palms, Yucca Mesa, and Morongo Valley Elementary Schools. The new hires will come with $600,000 price tag.
