As you may know, the Manchester School District is currently planning to redistrict at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. A special committee of the Board of School Committee has been appointed to alleviate overcrowding in some of our schools.
What does this mean for your family and child(ren)? The special committee’s goal is to finalize a redistricting plan by October 1, 2016. We don’t know yet how many students or schools will be affected. Right now the committee is gathering facts and community input.
The special committee is committed to keeping the public informed about the process and welcomes your input. Information is available at our website www.mansd.org under the Redistricting tab at the top of the page.
We also invite you to participate in a survey. It is available on our website. If you do not have access to a computer, you may ask for a paper survey from your child’s school office. The paper surveys must be returned to the school office by June 9 th . The results of the survey will help the committee make better decisions about redistricting and will be available on-line.
