Redistricting Vote – Last night the School Committee voted to approve Plan C, moving the fewest number of students town-wide and not moving any current Hastings children. This plan makes use of “flexible assignment” and includes locations with rental properties or high density where neighbors may attend 2 different schools. Superintendent Hackett also announced the appointment of Ms. Anna Monaco, former Principal of Clarke Middle School, to lead Lexington’s redistricting implementation efforts. Specifically, she will work with students, families, and staff to ensure a smooth and positive transition for all involved. There will be a District Transition Team, comprised of an administrator from each K-8 school in the system.
A recording of the meeting will be available on LexMedia shortly.
Please note: The central place for information on redistricting is the Redistricting Updates section of the LPS website.
