PAC wants in on student assignment

The Parent Advisory Council wants to engage at least 200 hard-to-reach parents about changing the student assignment  lottery system by the end of the school year.

At the Board of Education meeting Tuesday night, council representatives told commissioners that given the tentative deadline, the board won’t have enough time to reach people who do not feel comfortable or can’t come to meetings.</p>

They talked about people who don’t speak English or who might not even know the meetings exist, and how they feel it’s necessary to get as much input as possible.

The council in the past has also indicated that since the Ad Hoc Committee on Student Assignment only meets once a month, commissioners might not have sufficient time to both make decisions and receive community feedback.

Commissioners thanked the council for their efforts.
