Parents question Winchester school redistricting plan
Despite vocal opposition to what even officials called an imperfect plan, a divided Winchester School Committee approved a map-based model for shuffling hundreds of the town’s youngest students. That model, known as Scenario 1, will permanently shift school boundary lines, changing the school assignments for as many as 215 of the town’s 2,219 elementary students next September. Parents are already flooding the superintendent with e-mails, requesting details about where their child will be assigned next year. In response, school officials are preparing a directory of school assignments they hope will be available to residents by the Thanksgiving break.
