Committee to Recommend Redistricting Options for Area Elementary Schools


Parents of children at Crozet, Brownsville, Murray and Meriwether Lewis Elementary Schools are being sought to serve on a committee that will recommend redistricting options to accommodate growth at the schools to Albemarle school superintendent Pamela R. Moran.

The school board called for creation of the committee, which will also look at the situation at Agnor-Hurt Elementary School and its neighboring northern Albemarle elementaries, at its August 23 meeting. The committee will form two subcommittees to look at the western and northern feeder pattern schools. The committee will also consider adding on to buildings.

Applications to serve on the advisory committee are available at the main offices of area elementary schools and online at the Albemarle public schools’ website, Applications should be submitted to the clerk of the school board by noon Thursday, Sept. 13. Members of the advisory committee will be announced Sept. 24, and the committee will meet Oct. 2. They will present recommendations to the superintendent in early December and conduct two public hearings on those recommendations later in the month. The school board is expected to conduct a public hearing on the recommendations in March.

Besides parents, the advisory committee will include members of the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee, an equity and diversity representative, and Josh Davis, Chief Operating Officer for Albemarle County Public Schools.
