At a special called Montgomery County Board of Education meeting on Thursday, January 18, 2018, the Montgomery County Board of Education unanimously approved to implement the changes in the revised District Facility Plan (pending State Board of Education approval) beginning in the 2018-2019 school year. What does this mean? It means that starting next year:
- Montgomery County Intermediate School will become an elementary school housing preschool through 5th grades,
- McNabb Middle School will convert back to a 6th – 8th grade center,
- Camargo, Mapleton, and Mount Sterling Elementary Schools will house preschool through 5th grades, and,
- The Early Learning Center will no longer house Montgomery County School students.
Moving forward, we will have to tackle the tough task of redistricting our elementary schools. First and foremost, there are some guiding principles that will guide this process. It is our goal to:
- Impact the fewest families possible, while,
- Targeting an enrollment at each elementary school (K-5) between 500 and 600 students,
- Ensuring each elementary population looks as similar as possible in terms of demographics, and,
- Providing drafts of the redistricting plan to the community and families potentially impacted along with opportunities for them to provide feedback.
