Redistricting Updates

Redistricting

At the January 22nd School Committee meeting, Superintendent Julie Hackett announced the start of Phase II elementary and middle school redistricting.  Phase I redistricting began in 2015, with an outcome of some modification of the elementary school assignment map that applied to new, incoming students. It was planned that Phase II would involve a more comprehensive effort that would occur at or near completion of the new Lexington Children’s Place and Hastings Elementary School.

It is now time for us to begin the challenging and important work of adjusting our school assignment maps. Phase II Redistricting is expected to be more widespread, impacting more neighborhoods and areas of town than our 2015 redistricting effort. Our goal is to effectively use existing and newly available school capacity to ensure learning environments that are as equitable as possible for all students across the district.

A complete project timeline is available at http://bit.ly/RedistrictTimeline. The full Superintendent’s report from January 22nd can be read at http://bit.ly/SupUpdate012219.  New information and redistricting updates will be posted on this webpage throughout the redistricting process.

Master Planning Committee Updates

Master Planning

The Master Planning Advisory Committee was established in pursuant with the School Committee Policy BDF. The School Committee determined that developing a master plan for school capital projects is necessary and prudent as Lexington continues to experience enrollment growth at all grade levels. The Advisory Committee will develop and recommend a 5-10 year capital plan for school facilities, analyzing current facilities and enrollment forecasts, and developing conceptual plans and timelines for needed additional educational spaces.
