School Committee Pushes Redistricting Vote Back
The policy sub-committee will weigh its options next week.
Roughly six weeks after the Dedham School Committee first considered a vote on shifting boundry lines for elementary schools, the committee announced Wednesday that it will delay the vote another two weeks.
With a new member added to the committee - Jen Barsamian - and with more ideas coming to the table, the policy sub-committee will meet at 6 p.m. on May 9 at Dedham Middle School to make a recommendation, sub-committee member Dimitria Sullivan said.
"We had asked the administration for some more information regarding numbers," Sullivan said.
The full School Committee then is expected to take a vote on redistricting at its next meeting, tentatively scheduled for May 16 at Town Hall.
The policy sub-committee will consider adding streets to its original map, at the suggestion of neighbors.
"I do encourage people to come to the meeting," Sullivan said.
