Events this Weekend in Lexington

The holidays are upon us. Below are just a few of the things happening this upcoming weekend around Lexington MA.

First Friday Forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lexington

Friday, December 2
Cary Memorial Library, Large Meeting Room, 1874 Massachusetts Avenue
Topic: Buffer Zones - a Tool to Address Lexington's Growing Enrollment 

With enrollment rising by 690 students since 2008, Lexington’s current rate of student growth will require flexibility to adequately meet the urgent space capacity and operational demands of the school district. One approach to help address growing school enrollment has been the development of a NEW buffer zone policy by the Lexington School Committee. Although this is a new concept for Lexington, buffer zones are a tool successfully used in neighboring communities to help balance enrollment across schools while maintaining educational equity. This change would potentially affect the school assignment of students NEW to Lexington while taking into account existing building capacity. No students currently enrolled would be affected.
Join us for a panel discussion including School Committee members Judy Crocker, Eileen Jay; Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Mary Czajkowski, Director of Planning and Assessment, Maureen Kavanaugh and Special Assistant to the Superintendent, Sandra Trach, to discuss the development of a NEW buffer zone policy by the Lexington School Committee.
