BPS Modifies Timeline for School Choice Plan
At last night's school committee meeting, BPS announced a revised timeline for choosing a new student assignment plan. The new timeline is as follows:
November 13: EAC meeting to review additional analysis on four models
Late November/Early December: EAC meeting to identify potential recommendation
Week of December 3: EAC community engagement on potential recommendation
December 10: EAC presents recommendations to Superintendent
December 19: Superintendent presents recommendation at School Committee meeting
Early January: School Committee community engagement on Superintendent's recommendation
Mid-January: School Committee vote on proposal
This schedule allows more time for community engagement than the previous timeline did, but it doesn't really give the EAC more time to make their initial recommendation which was originally scheduled for 11/26.
At the school committee BPS also reported briefly on a meeting with representatives from Harvard, MIT, and the MAPC who are all providing technical assistance during this process.
