POLL: Is Saltonstall Beneficial or Detrimental to the District?
What are your thoughts on the Saltonstall debate? Let us know in the comments.
Saltonstall's extended day and year programming will continue next year, per a School Committee vote Monday night.
It was not, however, without a debate, which the mayor described as divisive.
Some contend that the extended programming is costly. Others said the extended calendar gives Saltonstall an unfair advantage, especially during a time when some schools have been designated as at risk of slipping to or already at Level 4 status.
Supporters of Saltonstall's extended programming contend that the schol is succeeding and should be used as a model for the rest of the district.
