and

respectively.
 
The
 
meetings
 
were
 
organized
 
by
 
cluster:
 
approximately
 
300

for
 
Clusters

A
 
total
 
of 
 
134
 
group
 
feedback
 
forms
 
and
 
240
 
individual
 
feedback
 
forms
 
were
 
collected
 
from

and
 
by
 
school,
 
and
 
is
 
available
 
on
 
BoardDocs.
 
In
 
addition,
 
a
 
summary
 
sheet
 
was
 
created
 
by
 
staff 
 
for
 
each
 
school
 
and
 
is
 
also
 
available
 
with
 
the
 
scanned

school
 
summaries
 
and
 
provides
 
a
 
high
 
level

and
 
the
 
School
 
Board
 
are
 
invited
 
to
 
drill
 
down

the
 
school
 
summaries
 
and
 
to
 
the
 
individual
 
and
 
group
 
feedback
 
forms
 
posted
 
on
 
BoardDocs.
 
Benefits
 
 
Keeps
 
students
 
in
 
same
 
pyramid
 
from
 
elementary
 
to
 
high
 
school
 
 
Addition
 
of 
 
AAP
 
teachers
 
would
 
raise
 
the
 
rigor
 
of 
 
curriculum
 
for
 
all
 
students
 
 
Students
 
might
 
spend
 
less
 
time
 
on
 
the
 
school
 
bus
 
 
Relieves
 
overcrowding
 
at
 
some
 
schools
 
 
Gives
 
more
 
students
 
more
 
opportunities
 
to
 
succeed
 
and
 
grow
 
academically
 
 
Addition
 
of 
 
after
school
 
enrichment
 
will
 
benefit
 
all
 
students
 
 
More
 
parents
 
may
 
consider
 
enrolling
 
their
 
children
 
in
 
AAP
 
if 
 
centers
 
are
 
within
 
their
 
pyramid
 
 
More
 
parent
 
engagement
 
with
 
closer
 
locations
 
 
Reduced
 
transportation
 
costs
 
 
Grandfathering
 
is
 
good
 
 
AAP
 
and
 
honors
 
will
 
be
 
offered
 
concurrently
 
Challenges
 
 
Process
 
is
 
moving
 
too
 
fast;
 
slow
 
down
 
 
Fear
 
of 
 
overcrowding
 
in
 
existing
 
AAP
 
centers
 
when
 
new
 
students
 
are
 
moved
 
there

Breaking
 
up
 
of 
 
current
 
AAP
 
center
 
elementary
 
cohorts
 
once
 
they
 
move
 
to
 
new
 
middle
 
school
 
AAP
 
center
 
 
Not
 
enough
 
critical
 
mass
 
at
 
some
 
schools
 
 
Fewer
 
classes
 
at
 
more
 
schools
 
may
 
affect
 
opportunities
 
compared
 
to
 
larger
 
center
 
schools
 
 
Concerned
 
that
 
identified
 
AAP
 
students
 
will
 
be
 
combined
 
with
 
other
 
middle
 
or
 
high
 
school
 
students
 
to
 
fill
 
classes
 
 
Ethnic,
 
racial,
 
and
 
economic
 
diversity
 
will
 
suffer
 
in
 
some
 
AAP
 
centers
 
 
Culture
 
of 
 
academic
 
rigor
 
is
 
diminished
 
when
 
AAP
 
students
 
are
 
moved
 
to
 
another
 
school
 
 
Longer
 
travel
 
time
 
to
 
new
 
center
 
than
 
to
 
old
 
center
 
 
Adequate
 
number
 
of 
 
certified
 
teachers
 
 
Attrition
 
of 
 
existing
 
AAP
 
center
 
teachers
 
could
 
bring
 
down
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
existing
 
centers
 
 
Ensuring
 
quality
 
of 
 
instruction
 
in
 
new
 
centers
 
is
 
equal
 
to
 
existing
 
centers
 
 
Challenges
 
for
 
families
 
with
 
students
 
in
 
both
 
center
 
and
 
base
 
school
 
 
Many
 
questions
 
exist
 
about
 
how
 
implementation
 
will
 
impact
 
enrollment,
 
overall
 
costs,
 
transportation
 
costs,
 
facilities
 
 
More
 
buses
 
to
 
centers
 
could
 
increase
 
traffic
 
and
 
safety
 
issues
 
 
Plan
 
doesn’t
 
take
 
into
 
account
 
split
 
feeder
 
schools
 
 
Doing
 
one
 
grade
 
level
 
at
 
a
 
time
 
may
 
be
 
isolating
 
for
 
students
 
and
 
teachers
 
 
Budget
 
implications
 
to
 
expand
 
centers
 
to
 
all
 
middle
 
schools
 
 
Moving
 
kids
 
is
 
a
 
band
aid
 
so
 
need
 
to
 
work
 
on
 
facilities
 
to
 
build
 
capacity
 
at
 
schools
 
 
Not
 
enough
 
community
 
engagement
 
 
Bell
 
schedule
 
differences
 
will
 
create
 
SACC
 
capacity
 
issues—they
 
need
 
to
 
be
 
aligned
 
with
 
the
 
base
 
school
 
 
Inconvenient
 
locations
 
for
 
many
 
parents
 
may
 
impact
 
their
 
involvement
 
with
 
school
 
 
No
 
matter
 
what
 
happens
 
countywide,
 
severe
 
overcrowding
 
at
 
Haycock,
 
Louise
 
Archer,
 
and
 
Hunters
 
Woods
 
must
 
be
 
addressed
 
Other
 
ideas/options
 
 
Allow
 
students
 
to
 
attend
 
the
 
closest
 
middle
 
school
 
AAP
 
center,
 
not
 
the
 
one
 
in
 
cluster
 
 
Consider
 
bell
 
schedules
 
with
 
realignment
 
to
 
reduce
 
family
 
hardships
 
with
 
siblings
 
in
 
multiple
 
pyramid
 
schools
 
 
Recommend
 
starting
 
the
 
AAP
 
expansion
 
with
 
a
 
third
 
grade
 
cohort
 
and
 
following
 
that
 
class
 
to
 
eighth
 
grade
 
with
 
full
 
completion
 
of 
 
expansion
 
in
 
2017
 
 
Build
 
up
 
existing
 
non
center/local
 
level
 
IV
 
programs
 
to
 
make
 
them
 
equal
 
in
 
expectations
 
and
 
results
 
 
Need
 
a
 
tool
 
to
 
measure
 
level
 
IV
 
programs
 
to
 
compare
 
their
 
success
 
 
Consider
 
viewpoint
 
of 
 
new
 
superintendent
 
before
 
making
 
long
term
 
decisions
 
 
Take
 
a
 
long
term
 
view
 
of 
 
capacity
 
of 
 
the
