Mays Chapel redistricting meetings postponed because of snow

Tuesday's boundary change committee meeting for the new elementary school in Mays Chapel has been postponed a day because of snow, meaning the community information meeting scheduled for Wednesday will instead be held Thursday.

Baltimore County Public Schools, which closed Monday and Tuesday because of inclement weather, announced the postponements early Tuesday afternoon.

The boundary committee meeting that will be held Wednesday was not originally scheduled when the committee began meeting in October. However, BCPS called for a fifth meeting because principals on the committee voted on the draft proposals to bring to the community information meeting, which is against the BCPS rules on redistricting.

The committee has been examining options for filling the 700-seat elementary school in Mays Chapel and reducing overcrowding at Hampton, Lutherville Lab, Padonia, Pinewood, Pot Spring, Riderwood, Sparks, Timonium, Warren, and West Towson . Not all schools will be impacted by the redistricting, however.

At the Wednesday meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. at Cockeysville Middle, the committee will vote on options that will be presented explained at the community information meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Carver Center for Arts and Technology auditorium in Towson. That meeting was originally scheduled to be held at Dulaney High.

Residents attending the information session will hear a presentation on the draft options, recieve data on how the options were created, and be given an online survey to provide feedback.

The committee will then use the feedback to help choose an option to present to the Board of Education.
