WESTFIELD – Westfield Public Schools Superintendent Stefan Czaporowski will present the proposal by the Transition Committee for grades k-4, 5-6 and 7-8 redistricting and school design at Monday’s School Committee meeting.
The committee has been meeting since the start of the school year to work out the details presented by the redistricting plan to bring Russell Elementary students back to Westfield, and move the fifth grade up. Already presented was the decision to make North Middle School the intermediate school for grades 5-6, and South Middle School the location for grades 7-8.
The leadership team for the transition includes Czaporowski, Ronald R. Rix, chief financial officer, Susan Dargie, director of curriculum, South Middle School principal Paul Newton, Paula Ceglowski, director of Human Resources, School Committee member Diane Mayhew and parent representative Rachel Bullock.
Czaporowski said he will be presenting the plans in Powerpoint on Monday, and will take questions from the School Committee. Following the presentations, the plan will be referred to sub-committee. He said while there won’t be an opportunity for feedback from parents on Monday, there will be that opportunity once the plans are in sub-committee.
“We’d love people to go or watch it live on Channel 15,” Czaporowski said, adding that the presentations will also be displayed on the district website at following the meeting.
Czaporowski said Monday’s meeting will give parents the opportunity to hear the proposal and digest it before public hearings are scheduled.
The School Committee meets at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, Room 207 at City Hall.
