Public forum about redistricting Princeton elementary schools set for June 5

The Princeton Public Schools will hold a forum at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 5 in the Princeton High School cafeteria to discuss options for redistricting the school’s four elementary schools for the 2024-25 academic year.

School district officials say no decisions have been made regarding future plans.

“We have been listening to feedback from parents and staff across the district and want to make sure all voices are heard,” Superintendent of Schools Carol Kelley said in an email about the meeting.

The discussion on June 5 will include details about possible redistricting options and the pros and cons of various options, including a new grades 5-6 school, building new classrooms at existing schools, a “sister school” plan, and other possibilities.

Parents, caregivers, staff, and students are welcome to attend the event. Childcare will be available.

The district tabled plans to redistrict for the 2023-24 academic year after parents objected and said there needs to be more discussion before changes are made.
