Boston Public Schools officials have rescheduled a Charlestown community meeting focused on proposed plans to overhaul the city’s school assignment process.

The community meeting originally set for Wednesday evening, is now scheduled for Saturday, October 13, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the school system announced Tuesday. It will be held at Charlestown High School at 240 Medford St.

The meeting, one of four being held around the city this week, will allow residents to discuss the recent proposals designed to address school choice for Boston families.

School officials in September unveiled five new proposals for assigning students that could drastically change the school system’s decades old assigning process that divides the city into three sprawling geographic regions. The aim is to allow students to attend schools closer to their homes.

Some parents have raised concerns about segregation and access to quality schools at previous community meetings about the proposed plans.

The Charlestown meeting is open to all Boston residents. Meetings are also scheduled in Mattapan, Dorchester, and Chinatown this week.
