Read an article that Rea View Elementary is under capicity. So, before reassignment, had they considered shifting back towards Marvin a bit, which may re-assign many of the re-assigned from last time? It may reduce a lot of the pressure off of the waxhaw area/cutherbertson.

Not sure where the humor in my question was. I was being sincere. The article addressed many issues with decline in enrollment and empty classrooms, so logically, I'd assume that the shift would be towards Marvin as opposed to out to Parkwood. My question was if it was on the table for discussion. For real. lol

I thought you were being facetious as that is what has been going on for months... Every map proposal has assignments shifting towards Marvin - all options right back to the very first one has had Marvin increasing attendance. Parkwood is being gutted in all options. So, you either haven't been following what has been going on or you were being a wise acre. I thought it was the latter.

In the end, there's a geography problem in the Marvin area. It has been pretty much ground zero for both recent realignments (pet projects aside).

Any insight is appreciated. Moving to the area within the next two-three months and trying to avoid a scenario where my third-grader starts in one school this year for two months only to be re-assigned to a new one next year.

Thank you.
Current maps are good for this school year. The BOE is proposing changing the boundaries for the 2018-2019 school year. You can find those here: https://croppermap.com/unioncounty/ Toggle the "Choose map layers to view" drop down on the left side to see the various proposals. Despite best intentions to create maps that last 10 years, that never happens. I'd suspect they will change again in 4-5 years. If you move to an area that is in between multiple schools, expect to be a ping pong.

Just buy in the Parkwood area. No one bothers us out here...probably we won't be redistricted for 50 years. But they may have to eventually build us new schools...

Does anyone recall the number of elementary, middle, and high students moved in the last redistricting?

It’s looking like they are currently planning to move between 4,600 and 5,000 students. That’s a whole lot more than I envisioned.

Thought it was around 5800, but that may have been before grandfathering.

Last I saw that is 1 option. Pretty sure the other option is less, around 4k?

They could easily move a whole lot less, but that doesn't seem to be an available option.

Sounds about right, maybe 5600? Grandfathering reduced it quite a bit.

So it sounds likes this redistricting is going to be about as large as the last. Itís hard to wrap my head around 1 in 9 kids when the last one was only three years ago.
