Read latest on CMS boundary plans

Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board members have submitted seven new possible motions for tonight's meeting on boundaries and magnet programs.

Read a proposal to shrink Myers Park High's IB magnet, sending most students to East Meck and Harding.

Read board chair Molly Griffin's new proposal for relieving crowding at Eastover Elementary by sending some students to Dilworth Arts and Myers Park and Elizabeth Traditional magnet schools.

Read the superintendent's plan to ease Eastover crowding by creating a new Dilworth neighborhood school and turning First Ward Elementary into an arts magnet.

Read Kaye McGarry's amendment that would shift the proposed Eastover/Dilworth boundaries.

Read McGarry's amendment that would leave Selwyn Elementary's zone untouched, rather than reassigning the Freedom Park area to the new Dilworth.
Read McGarry's amendment to provide more options next year for rising fifth-graders from First Ward.
Read McGarry's amendment to let next year's Eastover students choose to attend Dilworth.
Read McGarry's proposal to shift some Eastover students to Elizabeth and Myers Park Traditional magnet schools.

These drafts were sent to board members Monday night; they could be revised or dropped before tonight's 6 p.m. meeting. Here's the updated agenda for the meeting at the Government Center, 600 E. Fourth St.

I saw the kids of T.V. and it certainly does not look like the West and North West side of town. Lets make it equal. Not one minority in the whole room. Send the cameras to West Meck. or one of the other schools. I guess the South side is much better to have their own race.
