Union County, NC Public Schools Redistricting Possibly On Hold

 

The highly controversial and unpopular school redistricting plan for Union County schools may possibly be put on hold. Yesterday evening, Union County Commissioners made an offer to pay for some 49 mobile classrooms at an approximate cost of $3 million to help avoid redistricting for 14% of Union County's school population (almost 6,000 students). The overriding idea behind this proposal is to buy time for the Union County School Board to figure out a long-term solution to overcrowding in certain schools, which obviously could include the construction of new schools in those areas of Union County where there is demand based on population growth.

It's now in the hands of the School Board to make a decision to work with the County Commissioners in accepting and implementing this plan. Parents and homeowners, alike, are clearly in favor of this offer from the County Commissioners. As the Charlotte Observer noted, the commission's "vote was met by a raucous standing ovation from many parents and others at the meeting." 

 

See portions of my last post on the proposed redistricting of Union County, NC schools below:

 Union County, NC Public Schools Redistricting Affects 5,800+ Children

The highly anticipated public schools redistricting plan in Union County, NC will affect some 5,800 children, who will now be transferred to new schools within the district. 19 of the 30 Union County elementary schools are impacted and all of the middle and high schools.

Wholesale redistricting, which will impact entire neighborhoods and subdivisions throughout Union County, will impact not only thousands of children/students, but also possibly home values as well as many neighborhoods that were previously in top rated school assigned areas and sold at a premium because of school assignments, are now expected to be assigned to some of the less stellar schools in terms of performance. Parents and homeowners, alike, are extremely perturbed by the proposed redistricting plans, which they feel will have a deleterious effect on their children and their home values.

The full impact of Union County, NC proposed redistricting plan for public schools remains to be seen, but it appears as if these redistricting plans might now be on hold indefinitely. Stay tuned.

Nina I remember very well previous blogs you have done on this topic and the concern it is for residence not only for the quality of education their children will get if there is redistricting, but also concern with what it will do to property values.

George, this has ended up being exceedingly political; lots of commssioners up for re-election. So hopefully all the parties will get together and do something that will keep homeowners and families happy.

Boy this is a hot topic across the country and so heated when talking redrawing the lines in the school playground sand box.

Andrew... unfortunately, this kind of thing often ends up being very political and the kids' interests are lost in the shuffle!
