Speaking of which, the Board of Education also faces some tough decisions that could affect parents and students. Depending on whether the Redistricting and School Closure Committee meets its deadlines, the next school board might be the one determining what redistricting might look like and whether there will be additional closures. At the very least, the next board will be tasked with carrying out those plans. The school board will also be asked to address testing and other curriculum choices, collaborating with the Sheriff’s Office to carry out plans for school resource officers and dealing with the fallout of any state legislation related to the recommendations of the Kirwan Commission. Not to mention the next round of teacher contracts.
