November 27 – Elementary Boundaries Option 6-1 & Public Hearing
On Tuesday, staff presented an overview of a revised version of Option 6 (labeled 6-1) before the start of the Public Hearing. Several speakers identified some errors in the data so staff has gone back to thoroughly review Option 6-1. Staff has confirmed that errors were made and revised version of 6-1 is being finalized and will be posted online and shared with families via APS School Talk tomorrow, November 30. Check for the most recent boundary recommendations, maps, corrected data tables and community input on the Fall 2018 Elementary School Boundary Process at www.apsva.us/elementary-school-boundary-change/.
