A special meeting will be held in Dorchester Monday night for residents to offer their opinions about the Boston Public School’s Student Assignment Reform process.

Organized by Dorchester City Councilor Frank Baker, Monday’s meeting will be held at the Leahy-Holloran Community Center starting at 6 p.m.

BPS staff will be on hand to hear from residents and provide more information about the process that over the past year has worked to reshape how elementary and middle school students choose their school.

Several schemes have been designed to replace the three-zone system that currently determines where students are assigned.

BPS and its consultants have developed a 23-zone model, 11-zone model, nine-zone model, six-zone model, and a no zone model. Separate proposals have also been presented, including one by City Councilor John Connolly and a contingent of legislatures.

Both BPS staff and City Councilor John Connolly will present their proposals Monday, according to Baker’s office.

The Leahy-Holloran Community Center is located 1 Worrell St.
