One of the Board of Education’s most important responsibilities is to develop a student assignment plan for students enrolled in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The plan determines how students are assigned to schools, often based on where the student resides, as well as how they may access schools and programs of choice.
The Board conducts a comprehensive review every six years, making changes to the plan as necessary to meet the needs of our growing community and prepare every CMS student for success after graduation. Mecklenburg County is a growing, vibrant community and the CMS student body continues to grow and change from year to year. The world is also changing. Students in CMS today will require an increasing range of knowledge, skills and experiences to be successful in college and today’s globally competitive workforce.
