BOE Approves School Choice Measure for Seth Boyden-Zoned Families

Many Seth Boyden parents attended the Board of Education meeting on Thursday night. As outgoing Superintendent Dr. Ramos promised at his earlier meeting with our school community, he gave the Board of Education (BOE) information regarding equal school choice for Seth Boyden-zoned families.

Board members drafted a policy that provides for Seth Boyden-zoned families to have equal choice of schools, just as families in other zones have. The BOE voted in favor of this recommendation 8-1, and now Seth Boyden-zoned families will have the opportunity to choose between attending Seth Boyden or Marshall for K-2 and Jefferson for 3-5 for the school year beginning in September 2017. More details are available in this article on The Village Green.

We want to thank all of you who turned in a survey and attended or watched the Board of Education meeting. The results of the survey showed us what our community wants. We will continue advocating for our school and our students next year, and we hope to see every single student (except the current 5th graders!) back next year. We hope everyone has a safe and relaxing summer and we look forward to seeing everyone in September.

Good luck, 5th grade students! We know you will do great in middle school!
