Ann Arbor, MI – Despite concerns expressed by many parents about the safety of students in northeast Ann Arbor driving to the district's new high school, the school board has approved the boundary plan presented by Superintendent George Fornero.
The vote was unanimous Wednesday night.
Members of the group Northeast Neighbors say the district put diversity concerns over the safety of students in the redistricting plan. They say they may seek mediation through the Michigan Civil Rights Commission over the district's use of maps showing where different racial groups live to establish the new high school's attendance boundaries.
