Newton Schools Redistricting Update

Newton Schools Redistricting Update

This is an exciting time of elementary school facilities renovation and expansion in the Newton Public Schools.  Because Newton’s new schools will have expanded capacity to address enrollment growth, and there are currently elementary schools that are overcrowded, a Student Assignment Working Group, appointed by the Newton School Committee, has been examining elementary school boundary lines.  Multiple scenarios have been developed that explore the possibilities for easing crowding while also utilizing expanded capacity at the new Angier, Zervas and Cabot Schools.

A recommendation to School Committee will be presented on June 15, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the Education Center, room 210.  A public hearing is scheduled for June 22, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. at the Education Center, room 210 followed by a meeting of the School Committee.  Both meetings are open to the public and will be televised on NewTV.

If you have not yet had an opportunity to learn about this process and/or to offer feedback about potential changes, please visit here.

Input from all key stakeholders including parents, community members, transit and public safety experts, public officials and other community leaders continues to be critical.  The Newton School Committee, Superintendent and district administration are committed to minimizing disruption for students and families and no students who are currently enrolled in our system will be moved including students already enrolled for the 2015-16 school year.
