Superintendent proposes altering Burlington boundary maps

Print More

The Burlington Superintendent has proposed altering the boundary maps for the city’s neighborhood schools to balance student demographics.

Jeanne Collins has offered four proposals, including the creation of a magnet school, to the school board.

The goal is to change the demographics of the city’s six elementary schools, where the poverty rate ranges from under 30% at one school to 80% to 90% at schools in the Old North End.

With the adjusted map, the rate would range from a low of 45% to a high of 60%.
The proposals drew a mixed reaction from city residents.
