"Tedesco's win Tuesday sets a new majority that could shift the school system's student assignment policy promoting socioeconomic diversity, where students are bussed to schools across the county to achieve a balanced makeup of students.

“''We heard loud and clear across this county, people want to go to a neighborhood schools model,' Tedesco said Tuesday evening.

"Tedesco and three other newly-elected school board members have indicated they want to change the policy in favor of neighborhood schools. One other sitting member of the board also supports a change.

"Tedesco’s victory gives that faction a majority position on the nine-member board."
