HCPSS to Hold Community Forums on Redistricting, April 25, 27
Posted: March 29th, 2017
The Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) will hold community forums on school attendance area adjustments (redistricting) and school boundary alternatives. The forums have been scheduled to allow time to incorporate suggestions for improvement of the upcoming elementary school attendance area adjustment process.
In August 2018, HCPSS will open Elementary School #42 in Hanover. Attendance area adjustments are necessary to open this school. Additionally, school boundary adjustments at the elementary school level may be considered in other areas of Howard County.
Two community forums are scheduled:
- Tuesday, April 25, 7–9 p.m., at Wilde Lake High School, 5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia
- Thursday, April 27, 7–9 p.m., at Howard High School, 8700 Old Annapolis Road, Ellicott City
At both forums, HCPSS staff will present the revised Policy 6010, School Attendance Areas, describe the attendance area adjustment process and schedule, and receive comments from community members about the attendance area adjustment process and alternatives for addressing crowding and capacity.
Reservations are recommended. Please RSVP to SchoolPlanning@hcpss.org or call 410-313-1554. Individuals who would like to request a sign language interpreter for any community forum may contact Colleen Rice, interpreter scheduler, at 410-313-7046. A two-week advanced notice is preferred.
