More Redistricting Info:

Below are the upcoming APS meetings on the redistricting process.  Superintendent Davis has a goal of publishing his redistricting proposal this Sunday, March 4th, so these upcoming meetings will be important for our community to learn more and have our voice heard.

Coffee and School Redistricting Q&A hosted by Lake Claire

When:  Sunday, March 4 at 2 pm

Where: Frazer Center

Details: Wondering what is going on with the APS redistricting process? Curious about the capacity concerns and some of the creative options being discussed within the Grady cluster? Have unanswered questions about this important issue? Please join the Lake Claire Education Committee for an informal coffee and Q&A session.

During this session we’ll provide an overview of where we are in the redistricting process and what is to come, share a Lin and Inman LSC (local school council) update, as well as discuss the potential capacity issues and some creative ideas communities have been discussing to build a strong Grady cluster. In addition, there will be plenty of time for your questions!

Also, it was recently announced that Superintendent Davis has a goal of releasing his preliminary redistricting recommendation on Sunday, March 4.  If his recommendation is available in time for this meeting, we will cover it during the session.

Childcare will be provided. This meeting is open to all in the Lin Community.
