"We're a school district," she said. She asked why were some officials thinking about "making everything so convenient for everyone?"
McNally said in a year he would like to re assess whether the specialists are actually improving math scores and exercise caution about sending them to other schools.
A judge ultimately agreed last year that the district shifted the students in an effort to improve test scores and ordered the district to come up with a school improvement plan.
Schlomann said that math specialists are not "cost effective long term."
"Of course they'll be doing something but is what they're doing purposeful?" McNally asked.
Board member Corinne Pierog said she supported allowing choice districtwide because now working parents will be able to choose a school that is close to their workplace or baby sitter.

The board also agreed to hire a "dean of family and Nike Hyperrev 2017 Kyrie Irving students" for the Richmond and Davis schools that was described as helping with discipline and acting as a home liaison to the parents.
The board also voted on additional corrective measures for both Richmond Intermediate and Davis Primary that were sparked by recommendations from a parent and faculty committee.
Schlomann said the position arose from the corrective action plan committee's suggestion that the district provide a social worker, behavioral therapist or home and family liaison. Those suggestions were rolled into the "dean of family and students" position, he said, and will have an estimated salary range of $66,000 to $81,000.
Parents in the St. Charles school district will now be allowed to apply for a transfer for their children from their neighborhood school to a different elementary school in the district.

The idea is that the math specialists, with estimated combined salaries of $200,000, will provide additional help to the existing math teachers. The board also agreed that after two years, those math specialists could be transferred to other district elementary schools.
The District 303 School Board voted 5 2, with board members Steven Spurling and Judith McConnell voting no, to allow all students to apply by July 31 for a move. The action followed a separate vote to allow parents to apply for transfers from Richmond or Davis Nike Lebron 12 Nsw Lifestyle Low
The district won't allow transfers into a classroom once it's grown large enough to warrant hiring another teacher for another class section, he said.
Under the new policy, parents must submit a request by July 31 and provide three possible school choices. Parents will be responsible for transporting their children to and from school if the transfer is granted, Superintendent Don Schlomann said.
