6 meetings short

The Tennessean is reporting this morning that of the 9 MNPS BOE members only three have scheduled community meetings to discuss the rezoning.

School board members will hold community meetings to discuss zoning changes.

• 6:30 p.m. Oct. 22, Antioch High School, District 6 RepresentativeKaren Johnson

• 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25, Hillwood High School, District 9 Representative MNPS BOE Chair Marsha Warden

• 6 p.m. Oct. 29, Madison School, District 3 Representative Mark North

Marsha Warden is the only one of the four representatives up for reelection that has scheduled a meeting. When are the meetings for George Thompson , Ed Kindall , and Gracie Porter as well as the other three not up for reelection David Fox , Steve Glover and Jo Ann Brannon Unfortunately, all of the above meetings will fall AFTER the BOE's next meeting on this issue, October 19. They should get community input before they have their working session. They knew rezoning was coming long before Tuesday's meeting and should have anticipated the need to get input from their constituents.There should be a rezoning meeting in every district within 30 days. Much after that and the excuse will be there were conflicts with 'the holidays'.

Again, you can go to this MNPS page to view the current cluster maps and here to view the proposed cluster maps.
