Thank you. So we should ask for all email cell phone and text records of those CAC members along with all the BOE to see who met in private and jacked this all up.

Is this any surprise? All these options are just meant to confuse while they plan the map option they will ultimately approve. They already know exactly the lines they will draw. It doesn’t matter how many neighborhoods or students they must move to do it.

We’ve had CAPS moms draw up a bond package wasting tax dollars on capacity in the wrong places.

We’ve had CAPS moms dictating how capacity is determined.

Now, we have CAPS moms drawing the redistricting maps while the “independent consultant” cowers and lets them. But who can blame him when he already got threatened by BOE Chair Merrell when he failed to move her house in Option A.

Almost every elementary east of Rocky River Rd. left over capacity. No plans to add capacity for the ignorant natives anytime soon apparently.

In the West, Parkwood’s enrollment taken down to where it won’t be able to offer advanced and specialized courses or field some sports teams because it isn’t fit for their children. Neighborhood schools for some trumps educational opportunities for a whole school of children.

This is a lost cause. We are going to fund a premier school system for people west of Rocky River Rd. Everybody else better pray they can find a charter.

Neighborhood schools have been achieved in the West and the rest of us can suck it.

And if the BOE isn’t going to actually let the consultants produce a plan that equalizes utilization and instead focuses exclusively on “neighborhood schools”, some of those “neighborhood schools” are going to end up getting closed in the next decade.

Forest for the trees - or something like that.

Debts are owed to CAPS neighborhoods and apparently they will be paid at the expense of the students.

I know it's been mentioned before, but this board continues down the path of becoming everything they railed against about the last board. More and more we see how parents just want to be left alone and it is continually being pointed out how much uncertainty there is with the charters, capacity, special programs, development, etc. Compound that with a very clear lack of specific reasons to redistrict NOW and everything is pointing to delaying this whole thing. So instead of thinking it through, the are going to force it through... for what? so they can be like the last board, drop out and disappear after disrupting the entire school district for no good reason?

Unfortunately, that's what the optics tend to make me believe. Where is that cellphone reporter?

Yes. This seems to be about redistricting houses not students.

"Neighborhood schools" really is a code word for segregated schools in our case. After tracing all the changes the committee got bombarded with at the last meeting, it appears this redistricting is going to make UCPS more racially and economically segregated than it has ever been. "Transportation efficiency" and distance are a total red herring. Economically disadvantaged and minority kids are being bused great distances eastward. So, "neighborhood schools" appears to be exclusively for economically advantaged, white areas.
