Elementary Schools Boundaries Realignment Proposal
Attached is an amended version of OPTION 2 (sent earlier this week). There are two amendments on this new draft:
- This draft adds Railroad Avenue, Hidden Lake Drive, and Liberty Road to the group to transfer from Stony Lane El to Hamilton El. This group was mistakenly left of the previous OPTION 2 draft.
- This draft also changes previous language about those who choose to grandfather to current school. Parents must transport to the school. With a larger transfer group, we cannot accommodate transporting to the closest available bus stop as previously mentioned.
I apologize for any confusion. All other OPTION 2 Details remain the same. As noted below, this topic will be on the NKSC agenda March 12 and March 26.
To keep you up to date with the School Committee discussion over resetting elementary school boundaries, the School Committee has now met twice on the matter and has asked to another option which includes the Glen Neighborhood also being included in the redistricting from Stony Lane El to Hamilton El. A full list of all streets affected is listed under Option 2. Both the original and Option 2 can include the possibility of grandfathering students from grades 3 through 5 instead of just grade 5 as stated in the original option.
Full details for both options are attached.
Out of respect for community members who may now be included in the redistricting and to keep this process open, the School Committee has decided to continue the discussion at both it's March 12 and March 26 meetings. A vote is planned on the 26th. Both meetings will be held at the NKHS auditorium at 7pm, and citizens comments are welcomed.
Also, if you should have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact my office.
