Redistricting Update Sept 20, 2016

There are several important developments related to ACPS redistricting.

First, ACPS announced that the implementation date for redistricting would likely be pushed to the 2018/2019 school year to allow for completion of Patrick Henry, the new West End school and the Pre-K center.

Second, the initial baseline maps for redistricting have been released and can be found here or at the link below. The three options are a starting point for work by the Redistricting Review Committee. Two of the three options will impact the CBES community in a fairly significant way. As always, your input is critical to this process. Please reach out to the entire School Board with your thoughts/concerns. As a reminder, the School Board has not yet voted on a “grandfathering policy.”

Redistricting related meetings scheduled through October are as follows:

Wednesday, September 21: Review Committee Meeting, 7 p.m., Patrick Henry Cafeteria
