MASON CITY, Iowa – A program with the Mason City School District has some parents talking, but the principal wants to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Pinecrest is a K-8 school for students with behavioral and academic disabilities, and Principal Mike Penca, with Jefferson Elementary says, it’s important that parents understand why the students will be in the school

“Well obviously its providing special education services to students who are needing those supports in addition to behavioral supports we provide academic you know the Iowa core,” said Penca.

Penca says he did send out a letter to parents clarifying what the students are doing at the school.

He says the partnership has been very beneficial.
