Northgate Boundary Issue is back on the MDUSD Agenda
In April MDUSD voted to realign the Northgate attendance area boundaries and add 6 additional schools (two middle schools). They made this decision without seeking community input, without traffic or capacity studies, and without any notice to the community. After strong opposition from the Northgate community, on May 9 the decision was rescinded by the Board with a 3 – 2 vote, with Lawrence, Mason, and Mayo voting to rescind. Mayo voted against the realignment at the April Meeting as well.
MDUSD Board President, Cheryl Hansen warned the community that we should watch the agenda for these types of items, insinuating that communication should not be expected. As a community we have been watching and today MDUSD posted an agenda with the following item:
