The King George School Board will hold a public forum Monday to take comment on changing attendance lines for students in the division’s three elementary schools.
If the School Board approves redistricting as planned by Superintendent Candace Brown, it will result in switching schools for 225 elementary students beginning in September 2010.
Brown’s recommendation is to draw new boundary lines for attendance that would move an estimated 75 students from Sealston Elementary School (SES) to King George Elementary School (KGES) and would also switch an estimated 150 other students from KGES to Potomac Elementary School (PES).
The public forum is set for next week on Monday, March 8, at 5 p.m. prior to its regular meeting.
The School Board has been mulling a change in attendance lines since last fall, talking about it at meetings in September and October.
Brown’s proposal to redistrict for next school year would free up some space at SES and redistribute more students to PES, which has room to spare.
KGES is geographically located between those two schools, so that it would gain some students and shift others.
A division enrollment report dated Feb. 1 indicates that KGES has 837 students and SES has 889 students. The same report indicates that PES has about half those numbers, with 437 students.
The redistricting public forum is scheduled for Monday, March 8, at 5 p.m. in the board room of the Revercomb Administration Building, which is located behind the county Courthouse on Route 3.
The following details regarding the proposed attendance redistricting were obtained from the division administration.
