Session to be Taped by NHCS-TV for Parents
The New Hanover County Board of Education will hold a Redistricting Work Session on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, at 4:00 p.m., in the Board of Education Center, located at 1805 S. 13th Street, as scheduled. Some parents requested that the meeting time be changed due to a conflict with Middle School Open Houses; however, with consideration to the scheduled time of most Open Houses beginning at 5:30 p.m., the Board decided to keep the Work Session at the originally scheduled time. This would allow most parents to attend both meetings if needed. Although the Work Session is open to the community, public input will not be heard during this meeting. The Board will be discussing public comments received, analyzing demographics, and reviewing the proposed maps during the meeting. Additionally, the Work Session will be videotaped by NHCS-TV and parents may watch it at a later time if they are unable to attend.
The Board will be conducting three public forums in September in the northern, central and southern regions of the county so parents may attend a location that is convenient for them. The public will have an opportunity to provide input on redistricting during these forums. The dates, times and locations of these public forums will be announced soon. Each forum will be recorded and aired by NHCS-TV.
