IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa City school board members have delayed a vote that would establish a new diversity policy.
The Iowa City School Board announced Thursday that they will push back a vote scheduled for Saturday. The move comes after dozens of community members told the board to slow down the voting process.
Language in the proposed policy says the district cannot create new pockets of high- or low-income areas and transport those students outside their neighborhoods.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the district says Saturday's meeting will allow the board to listen to the community.
The board passed a first vote in December. Two more are needed to make it final.
