School district reschedules redistricting presentation

According to Rome City School District Superintendent of Schools Peter C. Blake, a scheduled presentation at tonight's Board of Education meeting by Ross Haber & Associates and Vaysen Studios on the two scenarios being explored in connection with plans to redistrict Rome's elementary schools has been postponed.
While what was considered a final agenda for the January 27 regular meeting of the Board of Education was sent out at almost 4 p.m. on Wednesday and included the presentation by the consultants, a revised final agenda was posted at 10:30 a.m. today, Thursday, Jan. 27, indicating that the presentation on redistricting had been postponed.
“We are not going to be discussing redistricting tonight as the consultants are taking the information from Monday’s meeting and developing some alternative plans from what was presented,” said Blake as to the reason for the postponement.
Blake shared that the redistricting consultants would now plan to present yet again revised scenarios at the Board of Education Redistricting Ad Hoc Committee meeting — which is comprised of all nine Board of Education members — scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 2, at the district offices at 409 Bell Road at 5 p.m. A Zoom link will be set up to allow people to attend the committee meeting remotely, according to Board President John Nash.  
This meeting is open to the public but, unlike the regular meetings of the Board of Education, the chair of the committee, Board Vice President Tanya Davis, would determine the meeting’s format and, while those who do attend would be free to observe the meeting, there may or may not be opportunities for engagement, questions or comment.
