Redistricting process to begin for elementary school in Mays Chapel

With the new 700-seat elementary school in Mays Chapel set to open in September, Baltimore County Public Schools announced Monday that the process of setting the school’s boundaries will begin this week.

According to a BCPS news release, the boundary committee, which is comprised of school officials, parents, community members, and representatives of the schools who could be affected, will meet four times in the coming weeks before the scenario is put forth for public input.

The first meeting of the boundary committee is Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 5:30 p.m. at Cockeysville Middle School.

Community members are welcome to observe the meetings, but only committee members can participate in the discussion, schools spokeswoman Diana Spencer said.

The committee will also meet at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, Wednesday, Nov. 13, and Wednesday, Nov. 20. The committee will discuss enrollment data and develop possible scenarios, then present those options for input at a community meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 11 at Dulaney High.
