School Board modifies one redistricting option, schedules June 8 input session

Henrico citizens attend a public hearing on middle school redistricting held May 11 at New Bridge auditorium. Citizens voiced their views to the Henrico School Board on redistricting options being considered for school year 2018-19.
The Henrico School Board last week decided to replace one middle school redistricting option with a modified version and scheduled a new community input session for June 8. The board is expected to make a final decision on the middle school redistricting changes at its monthly meeting on June 22.

Any final plan adopted by the board would take effect for the 2018-19 school year. The redistricting process will not affect current middle or high school students.

At the work session, redistricting Option D was replaced with a modified version, called Option D (Adjusted). The new Option D (Adjusted) joins Option A (Adjusted) and Option C as options currently under consideration for HCPS middle school redistricting.

The board’s work session was followed by a public hearing to gather input from the community on the redistricting process. In order to allow more time for members of the public to get a deeper understanding of the current options, especially the new Option D (Adjusted), the Board decided to hold another community input session before making its decision.

The new community input session will be June 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Hungary Creek Middle School, 4909 Francistown Road in Glen Allen. The input session will be an informal open-house-style event in the school’s gym where members of the public can drop in, examine large maps of the proposed options and talk with School Board members, HCPS staff members and representatives of CropperGIS Consulting.

Along with the new option comes a new online survey. Community members are encouraged to submit feedback online using the online survey/comment form. The form, along with news and detailed information about the current options, can be found on HCPS’ website at http://henricoschools.us/redistricting.
