  • Participate in a focus group. Focus groups are an opportunity to provide in-depth input into various policy options being discussed by the Advisory Committee. At this time, all focus groups have been conducted. Please see the focus group report. 
     
  • Volunteer to join a working group.The DME is hosting Community Working Group Meetings throughout the District on the Student Assignment and School Boundaries Review process.

Timeline

The final plan will be released in September 2014. Changes will begin to take effect for the 2015-16 school year. However, to support a smooth transition, “grandfathering” provisions will buffer the immediate impact on many current students and their families.
