2016 Managed School Choice Task Force Info ------------------------------------

I certainly hope we will see the RCSD and the City work together to rebuild neighborhoods.  Extensive work was done in 2016 by the Managed School Choice Task Force  headed by RCSD Board member Liz Hallmark.  A major recommendation that came from that study was to stop NEEDLESSLY busing kids all over the city.  We had no problem with "school choice" if the parent really has a valid reason to bus the student across town but most parents pick the school to get busing for their child for safety. As a result the current 1.5 mile state reimbursement formula is destroying our neighborhoods by separating parents from their child's school and destroying the cohesiveness of neighborhoods and the schools.
In 2016 I also recorded about 2/3 of the Managed Choice Policy Task Force  meetings and they are on my YouTube channel.  I started doing that so people who missed a meeting could look at the video and be ready for the next meeting.  Getting parents to come to these meetings was always difficult.  I hope this can be helpful.  I hope this will help people review what was done.
I recorded part of the Managed Choice Task Force 4/18/2016 Summaries from break-out groups https://youtu.be/4CKvDVYiM_k
and part of  the 2016 04 25 - Managed Choice Policy TF  https://youtu.be/kENoi8yOpUg

I think the first one I fully recorded is May 3rd 2016, and they go through to October 6th 2016 for about 20 meetings
