During Phase II of the Student Assignment Review, CMS will work with the community to evaluate existing home school attendance boundaries and high school feeder patterns to determine if they support the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education’s Goals and Guiding Principles for student assignment. We are working to:
Our Guiding Principles define the types of changes we are able to make. They require that CMS continue to assign students to a home-school in proximity to their home address and that we consider the following factors:
Identify CriteriaCMS will engage the community to decide how to identify schools where a boundary change could support the Goals for Student Assignment.
Evaluate Boundaries and High School Feeder Patterns CMS staff will apply the criteria to all existing boundaries and high school feeder patterns to identify those that least support the Board’s Goals.
Develop Recommendations CMS staff will develop options for new boundaries and high school feeder patterns that better support the Board’s Goals.
Engage Communities Communities affected by the proposed changes will be invited to provide feedback.
Implement Recommendations (Fall 2018 at the earliest)Options will be refined based on feedback from the community and Board. The Phase II timeline calls for the Board to vote on proposed changes in late spring 2017.
