It's now August, and the "committee" is getting closer and closer to deciding what plan they'll put forward to the public.

Fran Keaveney sends out a message to the School Board asking for availabilty August 26 or August 27 for a "redistricting sub-committee" meeting. Lisa Fair Pliskin affirms in her response that she's "attended most[meetings]".
