Main Points

​Citizens will have the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed student assignment goals during the Public Hearing. The goals are as follows:

The Mission of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is to maximize academic achievement by every student in every school.

The Board of Education believes that the Student Assignment Plan ("the Plan) is a vital resource for accomplishing this mission.

It is the Board’s intent that CMS will employ a variety of options and methodologies to develop a Plan that takes into account our Vision of providing every student the best education available anywhere, preparing every child to lead a rich and productive life.

The Board believes that a Plan that promotes the Vision and Mission of the Board will, to the extent possible:

  • Reduce the number of schools with high concentrations of poor and high needs children; and
  • Preserve and expand schools and programs in which students are successfully achieving the Mission and Vision of the Board; and
  • Provide school assignment options to students assigned to schools that are not meeting performance standards established by the state; and
  • Maximize the use of school facilities, transportation and other capital and operational resources to reduce overcrowding and promote equitable access to varied and viable programmatic options for all children.

Sign up to speak by calling Board Services, 980-343-5139, by 12 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016. Only one name per caller will be registered.
