Updates related to this study will be shared at regular intervals at School Committee meetings, online and directly with the DT community, at least on a monthly basis. We recognize this process can be emotional; the District is committed to engaging in this study with the greatest of care towards students, families, and staff.
There is no specific "time" line, there is a defined process flow and the process is still in Phase 1 as shown in this flow (below). There is no timeline in that the process will cover step by step as needed but NOT by a specific date.
The discussion on the report Tuesday night gets to focus on the specifics in the report but will not reach a conclusion yet as indicated by the process there is more analysis to be done.
