2017-2018 Student Assignment Review
Letter from the Superintendent

​Student assignment is an important responsibility of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. It is also an area of intense public interest because it affects our students and their families.

The Board of Education undergoes a comprehensive student assignment review for our district every six years to make sure that we are following our guiding principles in this area. Other reviews occur periodically as we continue to grow, adding students each year.

The Board of Education’s guiding principles for student assignment include a commitment to its Vision, Mission and Core Beliefs, which spell out a district-wide focus on maximizing academic achievement by every student in every school. Positive and supportive learning environments are a critical factor in our success, and student assignment plays an important role in creating such environments.

We also recognize the import​ance of having a student-assignment plan that is equitable, reflects our community’s diversity and that is stable so that families are not needlessly disrupted. To see our district’s student-assignment policy in full, click here.

As we begin this review, we want to keep our families, our employees and the public informed about our progress. This page will provide links to schedules, upcoming meetings, decisions and other information about student assignment. Please visit this page regularly for the latest updates.

Thank you for supporting Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
