Redistricting



Elementary school redistricting will create an attendance zone for a new elementary school, scheduled to open in September 2018 and located off Billingsley Road in White Plains. Additionally, it will expand the Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School attendance zone and balance student enrollment across the county as needed at all other elementary schools. Dr. Mudd is scheduled to undergo a complete renovation and expansion, starting next school year.

The Board has scheduled two public hearings to allow residents to comment on the proposals. Public hearings on the committee’s proposals are set for 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 24, 2017, at Westlake High School and 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at St. Charles High School. CCPS will provide elementary school students’ parents with a fact sheet containing a synopsis of the alternatives in early April.

Students affected by redistricting involving Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School will move to the transition school starting with the 2018-19 school year and to the renovated building in the 2019-20 school year.

How will comments be received?
The Board of Education believes community input is essential to a successful redistricting.
There are several ways for residents to share ideas about the upcoming redistricting:

  • Email ideas and comments to redistrict@ccboe.com. Emails will be forwarded to all Board members.
  • Hold a neighborhood information meeting with Charles County Public Schools staff. If you have a smaller group, such as a community or neighborhood association, that would like to meet with staff members to learn more about the redistricting process, why it is needed or to provide ideas, please email Brad Snow, director of transportation and redistricting facilitator, at bsnow@ccboe.com.
  • Participate in public hearings.

Where to find redistricting information
There are a number of ways parents and the community can keep up-to-date on redistricting. CCPS continually posts information on the school system website at www.ccboe.com/redistricting, including time lines, meeting notices, publications and parent notifications, maps, fact sheets and more. Additionally, all parents receive four informational fact sheets – an introduction to redistricting, committee proposals, the Superintendent’s recommendation to the Board of Education and the accepted redistricting plan. Board meetings include updates on the process and are televised live and aired on Comcast Channel 96 and Verizon FiOS Channel 12. The meetings also stream live on the school system website at www.ccboe.com


Throughout the process, Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) will provide information through telephone calls and emails, mailings/backpack fliers, CCPS television stations Comcast Channel 96 and Verizon FiOS 12, and the CCPS website at www.ccboe.com/redistricting. The Board will also accept written comments. Send comments or questions to redistrict@ccboe.com or Charles County Public Schools, Redistricting, P.O. Box 2770, La Plata, MD 20646.
