August 14, 2012 AAC Meeting Summary

Well if this meeting is any indication, folks are really getting interested in redistricting.  I counted at least 83 citizens at this meeting.  

The meeting started off reviewing plan L7 (elementary) and M7 (middle).  The committee made several changes to L7 in a couple rounds and I believe the night ended off on plan L10.  Staff will integrate the changes for L10 and produce a new report as soon as possible.  Plan M7 was also played around with.  There were so many changes here that I could not follow what actually changed, as the committee tried out different senarios, reversed themselves when they didn't pan out.  I believe the night ended on plan M9 or M10.  I do know that something in M10 caused a change in the Elementary plan so maybe we will really be seeing L11.  I won't know for sure until the meeting notes and draft plans come out.  

For TSES specifically, there was no change to the current plan of moving polygon 96 to Steven's Forest.  

Important dates to remember
There is no redistricting meeting next week.  The final summer meeting will be on the 28th.  This meeting will show the results of the middle school plan, and focus on written descriptions on pros and cons of the AAC meeting for the presentation to the BOE.

1.  September 11, public hearing on plans at Howard High School
2.  September 12, public hearing on plans at Centennial High School
The format for meetings 1 and 2 will be to start the night with a short presentation from Joel on the process and then a description of the plans.  I suspect/estimate that this will be the original staff plan and L10 or L11 from this meeting, with middle school plan merged in.  Then it is open Mike.  Anyone can come up and express their feelings on the plan or plans, process or anything.

There will be three more public hearings in October.  Oct 18 is when the final staff plan will be presented to the board.  October 25th will be a BOE worksession and Oct 30th will be another public hearing.

Well, that's all I have for now.  I will update the attachments as soon as they become available.  Look back here for another posting in two weeks.
