Humboldt Junor High awaits improvement plan.

A plan for improvement for Humboldt Junior High in St. Paul outlines several possible ways in which to help the school meet federal testing requirements, The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Wednesday. The plan calls for finding a long-term funding partner and even possibly shutting the school down for the year.

All the aspects of the plan were already under consideration except for the possible shut down. No decisions have yet been made on what proposals to pursue. The plans were required to be released Monday under accordance with state law. These requirements extend to all schools that are defined as underperforming in relation to No Child Left Behind guidelines.

Both Humboldt Junior High and Arlington High School face the stiffest penalties under No Child Left Behind in the St. Paul School District.
