Meeting # 10

  • At the conclusion of the April 28th meeting, the authors of the new model suggestions were invited to reflect on their models, consider any changes or edits and, if desired, resubmit the model by Sunday, May 2, 2021, for review at the next meeting. The authors of the models can also pull their model from consideration if they choose. Those who did not author a model but may have ideas as a result of the last meeting were given the opportunity to submit model suggestions by May 2, 2021.

    At the May 5, 2021 meeting model authors each took time to speak about the models they developed, explain their reasoning, and answer questions from the team. In total, 14 models were presented. Those models can be viewed here. Team members received a ranking form via email so they may begin ranking their preferred models. At the next meeting of the School Reorganization Team, the data from the rankings will be presented. 

    No decisions were made at this meeting. The meeting can be viewed in its entirety on our YouTube channel.
