For what it’s worth, I don’t think anyone is excited to still be talking about this, including One North Shore (ONS) residents, Ms. Levine, or the board. The issue arises from ONS being removed from the zone last year without debate or notice, and some families simply wanted the chance to at least discuss it. As for whether it’s about money, property values may actually have gone up since removal from the zone, as ONS caters to empty nesters in every way (including floorplans, which are not kid-friendly), and will likely never have more than a handful of children there, even at full capacity. Nonetheless, a few families were affected, families who ironically would add to the diversity of the school, coming from very diverse ethnic backgrounds. In the end, it seems like some folks are trying to have a reasonable discussion in a charged environment. Jill is doing her job, which is not easy, and ONS families are doing theirs.
