Boston Public Schools (BPS) will host additional community meetings in July to talk about ‘what we are hearing’ in our analysis of community feedback and the next steps in the student assignment redesign process.

This summer, BPS will use community feedback to develop proposals for a new student assignment plan. In the fall, BPS and the External Advisory Committee will analyze the drafts, solicit more feedback and develop a final proposal. The School Committee is expected to vote on a plan this winter.
Our new website, bostonschoolchoice.org, will help keep the community informed and engaged in the process of improving school choice in Boston; it is not designed to help families choose schools for the upcoming school year.
