Discussion on ICCSD Diversity Policy

IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) – Today (Thursday) residents in Iowa City will be getting together to talk about the school district's new diversity policy.
The Black Voices Project and Family2Family will be hosting a neighborhood meeting to talk about the idea and talk to school leaders.
Earlier this year the district announced a new plan to diversify classrooms which quickly created controversy.
That's because putting it in place meant moving many students across town to different schools.     
School officials were using the number of students enrolled in free and reduced lunch to choose who to move and to where. 
After an initial map was revealed by Superintendent Stephen Murley and a lot of feedback, the board decided to ask the Murley to re-draw the map.
Board members say the plan leaned too heavily on the policy and it could end up hurting students.
Neighbors will be meeting at The Spot, which is on Crosspark Ave., from 6pm to 8:30pm.
The board says no students will be moved until a new map is finalized and approved.
