Superintendent Fleishman’s Commencement Speech Controversy

New School District Lines Being Drawn

March 24, 2015

Dear Families,

As many of you are aware, this is an exciting time of elementary school facilities renovation and expansion in the Newton Public Schools.  Because the new schools will have expanded capacity to address our enrollment growth, and we currently have elementary schools that are overcrowded, we have a Student Assignment Working Group that is examining elementary school boundary lines.

Over the past few months, the Student Assignment Working Group has developed a process to evaluate various student assignment scenarios. At the School Committee meeting this Thursday, March 26, beginning at 5:00pm and held in the Education Center (room 210), the Student Assignment Working Group (SAWG) will share some of the scenarios being considered for the first time. We expect a recommendation will be made to the School Committee regarding a change in elementary school district boundary lines by the end of the school year.

The public is invited to attend Thursday’s meeting as we are committed to engaging the community on this important decision. The presentation will also be available to view on NewTV and the Newton Public Schools website in the following days.

We will continue to keep you informed as the Student Assignment Working Group proceeds with its work.

Sincerely,

David Fleishman
Superintendent of Schools
