Bury Allows Extension: Deseg Proposal Made Public Nov. 9

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 5:00 PM

On Friday, Sept. 21, Weekly World Central noted the same-day deadline for court-appointed desegregation special master Willis Hawley's deseg plan came and went, while U.S. District Court Judge David C. Bury had yet to respond to a Sept. 19 extension request from all parties involved in the process.

Observers noted to the Range that the lack of response from Bury said a lot — that maybe he wasn't too happy being asked to give the process more time after the last order made it pretty clear this was it.

Yesterday, Bury shot all that chisme down when he issued an order with a whole new set of deadlines that take this process into December.

Here's the order:

MENDOZA___F__9_24_12__Order.pdf

New deadlines:

Nov. 1, Hawley will provide all parties with a revised version of proposed plan, and because of public comment requirements, objections from the parties has to be prepared and mailed to translators for Spanish translation by Nov. 1.

Nov. 9, Hawley's plan and the objections have to be filed with the court in English and in Spanish and simultaneously released to the public. Until this time, the proposal, objections and negotiations continue to remain privileged and confidential.

Nov. 28, the state can file any objection re: Mexican-American studies classes, "if such a component is included" in the plan.

Nov. 26-28, the plan will be made available for public review and comment at each school and on-line, with public hearings occurring during this time period.

Dec. 10, the revised plan will be filed with the court, identifying any changes, if any are made during public comment process.

Dec. 14, state and parties file responses to any objections and changes made to the plan during the public comment process.

"It is further ordered that there SHALL BE NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS OF TIME."
