Also, there is an School Board Audit and Finance Committee meeting this Thursday, the 11th from 3:30-5:30 in the School Board conference room. I'll bet the budget is the top discussion here.

What is an option school?
(from the district's site):
Option Schools are the schools that, in the New Student Assignment Plan, do not have specific attendance area boundaries.
Students may apply for any Option School in the city, and transportation is provided to specific linked Option Schools based on attendance area. Option Schools include a number of schools that follow an alternative curriculum (for example, expeditionary learning).
