Improving School Choice:
Building Better Options Together
BPS is developing an improved
student assignment plan and we want your input!
This spring more than 2,300 people shared ideas for improving school
choice and student assignment.
Now, BPS has developed several new options and we'd like to share
them with you.
You are invited to community meetings to learn more and let us know
what you think:
*Saturday, Sept. 29 (10:30am-lpm):
East Boston High School, 86 White St., East Boston (Spanish
You can also explore the options and fill out an on-line survey at
bostonschoolchoice.org after Sept. 25
Under the school choice proposals, high schools will remain citywide
Any new plan would be phased in,
which means the school choice process for the 2013-14 school year
will be similar to what families are used to today
BPS will present several options to the External Advisory Committee
on School Choice Monday, Sept. 24
The public meeting will be held at 6pm at the Frederick Pilot Middle
School, 270 Columbia Rd., Dorchester
You can watch it live on Boston City TV: Comcast channel 24 and RCN
The External Advisory Committee is a diverse group of 27 citizens
from across Boston examining issues of equity, school quality,
access, demographics and academics across all schools.
What comes next?
Based on your feedback and input from the External Advisory
Committee, BPS will update the proposals in October and November.
Then, the EAC will make a recommendation to the Superintendent, who
will bring a proposal to the Boston School Committee in December.
The School Committee will then hold additional public hearings
before voting on a new plan this winter.
