* 1. Socioeconomic integration is an important tool for improving educational outcomes for all students.

* 2. The school district should not pursue a particular strategy of socioeconomic integration if the school communities with the highest concentration of low-income students would not support that strategy.

* 3. Having high concentrations of low-income students at a school tends to result in affluent migration from the community in which the school is located.

* 4. Allocating additional resources to a school over a long period of time (especially more teachers to have a better student to teacher ratio) is the best way to remove educational barriers to learning that disproportionately affect low-income students, which results in the district having no need, or at the least, very little need for boundary changes.

* 5. Boundary changes that achieve socioeconomic integration for all our schools is the best way to remove educational barriers to learning that disproportionately affect low-income student, and there would be little or no need to allocate additional resources to particular schools since they would be balanced socioeconomically.

* 6. Differences between concentrations of free and reduced lunch are best addressed by means of a combination of allocating additional resources to a school over a long period of time (especially more teachers to have a better student to teacher ratio) and modest, but not extensive, boundary changes. Practical limits on accomplishing either part of the combination would make it that much more important to do the other.

* 7. Efforts to socioeconomically integrate schools should not send students to schools that are over x mile(s) further from their home than their current school is. Choose the option closest to what you believe.

* 8. Unless a new facility is opened, the school district should never move more than x% of a school's current population in order reduce high concentrations of low-income students in schools. Choose the option closest to what you believe.

* 9. How significant of a barrier is a high concentration of low-income students in a school? Choose the answer that is closest to your view.

* 10. Evaluate the following strategies as attempts to balance free and reduced lunch (FRL) rates.

  Strongly Disagree Disagree I don't know, or it would take more to convince me in either direction Agree Strongly Agree
The district is justified in using non-voluntary movement (e.g., changing boundaries) in order to balance FRL rates.
The district should first try to use voluntary movement strategies (e.g., magnet programs) to balance FRL rates.
The district should also try to use semi-voluntary movement strategies (e.g., expressing top three school choices with the administration choosing one of the 3) before using non-voluntary movement.
