Candidate Tania Del Rio brought up the recent proposal to convert Charlestown High School into an innovation school:

We need a pathway to quality education for everyone in the district. 

When asked specifically about the prospectus, and whether it could "come back", Del Rio responded:

That's what i'm hoping, is that there will be a conversation that brings together everyone. One of the reasons that the proposal didn't move forward is that many stakeholders felt like they weren't consulted appropriately and so, how can we start that process again and make sure that everyone's points of view can be heard, and we find a way forward together.
