The Redistricting Advisory Committee made its final recommendation for the redistricting changes affecting several Winchester elementary schools. If passed, the changes will go into effect for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Before then, a public hearing is scheduled for Monday at 7 p.m. at Winchester High School.
The School Committee, who makes the final decision on redistricting changes, will hold a special meeting for the final vote 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 7 at the high school.
The proposed map has been attached to this article.
