It is a long, tough process, Willis said. Before any more talk about future redistricting would happen, she said, officials should try to figure out where the problems are now while planning for the future.
“The numbers change often, schools are still registering,” she said.
Grinnell is the town’s oldest school. Having too many students in a classroom is not desirable as the school’s classrooms are smaller.
Willis said officials would revisit the Grinnell numbers in a few weeks to scope out the best solution there. It’s all part of the district’s long-range planning goal of anticipating what the years ahead will look like for Derry students.
“We will look at where the students are, and how best to serve them,” Willis said.
