This page is about the 2008 reconfiguration, when Loker was closed, not about the more recent re-opening of Loker. Each link below provides progressively more information about what happened in 2008. Please note that while 4 out of the 5 School Committee members who voted to close Loker are now gone, Barb Fletcher remains on the Committee.
This is the 1-minute version of what happened - a brief overview.
Why the Big Deal
This page answers the questions about why this was (and continues to be) such a significant event and why it still deserves our attention.
A timeline of events leading up to, including, and after the reconfiguration.
The Gory Details
AKA, the Reconfiguration Archive, this was the orignal Wayland Transparency™ (WT) site for the first year or so. It captures some of the raw emotions of the day, and is more opinionated than the main WT site. The original purpose for the site was to create an honest record of the events as they unfolded without the spin that the SC and administation was wont to add and it includes many documents and WayCam videos that provide irrefutable proof of what actually happened. This link opens the Reconfiguration Archive in a new window.
