At our PTA meeting held on January 3, W&L student Matthew Herrity, founder of Students for Diversity, spoke about efforts to promote high school diversity in upcoming APS redistricting decisions.

In case you are interested in seeing that presentation, the PowerPoint that Matthew Herrity shared can be found here.

The presentation emphasizes data relevant to Jamestown, but it also provides information about Arlington’s middle and high schools. Matthew compared schools within the county as they stand now, as they will stand once the recent boundary changes are made, and shared examples of models that are used in other locations in the country.
