What happens to these students if the city forms its own school system? We want to take every possible step to enable these families and children to continue being served by our schools. Along with students residing within Chelsea’s city limits, these young people are important and valued members of our student population. Once the feasibility study is completed and publicly presented this fall, we all will know the steps required to form and operate a new city school system. At that time, we will reach out to all our families, both those living within the Chelsea city limits and those not residing within the city limits but currently being served by our schools, to provide all such information. We think it important for all our students to continue without interruption their attending schools where they have established friendships with classmates and participated in extracurricular activities and sports alongside peers they have known over the years.
