Second Public Information Session to be held to get input on district redistricting efforts

On Tuesday, August 27, Wayne County Public Schools (WCPS) will hold its second public information session to update families and the community about its ongoing redistricting process. The session will be held at 6 PM in the Wayne Community College Moffatt Auditorium. 

“This session is intended to share two possible redistricting options that our Planning Committee has developed and for the public to review and give input,” states Dr. David Lewis, WCPS Assistant Superintendent. “At this stage of the process, it is important that get as much input as possible from stakeholders across Wayne County. In conjunction with the August 27 event, we will be launching a ThoughtExchange survey to allow all families and school district stakeholders the opportunity to view the two options online and to share their thoughts about each.”

The public can view the potential redistricting options and other resources by clicking on Fall 2020 Student Realignment Study.

On February 25, 2019, the Wayne County Board of Education took a historic step towards countywide redistricting by unanimously approving Cropper GIS Consultants and McKibben Demographic Research to lead a Fall 2020 Student Realignment Study. Work began this spring with the collection, analysis, and assimilation of data. In June the first of two Public Information Sessions was held. Over the course of the summer a number of Planning Committee meetings were conducted. This fall, WCPS hopes that final planning meetings will occur and final recommendations from Cropper GIS Consultants and McKibben Demographic Research can be presented to the Board of Education for its consideration.
