Fast Facts (September 2019) Video

Welcome to the home page for “Redistricting 2021,” an important process to realign attendance zones for elementary, middle and high schools, with a goal of having updated school boundaries in place for the 2021-22 school year.

Why redistricting? Because of current and projected population growth, overcrowding, new school construction and other demographics, school divisions must occasionally examine and alter their school attendance zones. This process has the potential to affect many communities in Henrico County.

LATEST NEWS:

Sept. 12 update: We’ve uploaded a four minute “Fast Facts” video, an interactive map of current school boundaries, as well as video and documents related to the Sept. 9 and 11 public information sessions and committee orientation meetings

Aug. 30 update: The HCPS Redistricting Committee has been finalized. The members of the elementary committee will meet for orientation after the Sept. 9 public information session, and secondary committee members will meet for orientation after the Sept. 11 public information session.

Aug. 12 update: A timeline and schedule for the redistricting process has been set. The first opportunities for the public to learn more about the process will come at two public information sessions: Sept. 9 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at New Bridge Learning Center auditorium, and an identical session Sept. 11 at Glen Allen High School.

Timeline for Redistricting Process

  • Spring 2019

    Contract awarded to Cropper GIS Consulting, a national K-12 consultant, for purposes of managing the redistricting process.

  • Summer 2019

    Collect data and create a committee of community members to lead the process.

  • Fall 2019 to Winter 2019-2020

    Committee work to develop redistricting options, along with ample public meetings and opportunities for feedback. Committee members will recommend multiple options which are typically revised throughout the process based on public input. The full schedule of meetings, which will be open to the public to observe, will be made available this summer.

  • Spring 2020

How will we communicate during “Redistricting 2021”?

Employees and families of students enrolled in Henrico County Public Schools can expect to receive updates in their email. We will email you each time there is a new, substantive development. We will also include redistricting updates in “The Binder,” an e-newsletter that goes out every two weeks during the school year.

Updates will also appear on the school division’s three main social media platforms:

@HenricoSchools
@HenricoCountyPublicSchools
@HenricoCountySchools

The school division will also announce major developments in what are known as “media advisories” or “news releases,” which are received by the Richmond area’s local news media.

No redistricting proposals will be implemented without a great deal of public input and participation. Henrico Schools will share information about the planning process as it becomes available. Updates will be posted on this page throughout the entire process.

If you or someone you know needs assistance in a language other than English or Spanish, please contact the Henrico County Public Schools Welcome Center at (804) 527-4604
