HCPS public hearing May 11 will focus on middle school redistricting options for 2018-19 school year


The Henrico County School Board will hold a public hearing on

May 11 at New Bridge auditorium to get feedback on proposed draft options in the redistricting process for HCPS middle schools. Options under consideration would take effect for the 2018-19 school year.

There are currently three draft redistricting options under consideration, but HCPS staff members and CropperGIS Consulting continue to explore modifications to existing options and possible new options. Details about current draft options are available on Henrico Schools’ website at http://henricoschools.us/redistricting/, where members of the public can also share their opinions through a comment/survey form.

Community members are encouraged to sign up in advance to speak at the public hearing. To sign up, call the clerk of the School Board at 804-652-3808. A sign-up sheet will also be available at the meeting, but there may be more speakers than allotted time. Each speaker will have three minutes to make comments. Organized neighborhoods are asked to designate a spokesperson; that person would make remarks and then ask those in attendance who agree with the expressed views to stand as a show of their support.
