What do you think of the school system's process for getting public input on future attendance zone changes?

They get poor grades for their public participation process. Plans are brought to public meetings fully fleshed out. Then, they tell the participants there will be no public comment period for the meeting. This is very old school policy making. More up to date models for ground up communication are clearly in order.
