The Board of Education voted on Monday, September 25, 2017 to delay the opening of Billingsley Elementary School for one year due to construction delays. The Board’s vote delays the opening of the school and the accompanying redistricting of elementary school students until September 2019.

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) staff updated the Board on the issues complicating the opening of Billingsley, which is under construction and originally scheduled to open at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Along with the delay in opening the new elementary school, the elementary school redistricting scheduled to begin in the 2018-19 school year is postponed for one year. Students impacted by the elementary school redistricting decision will not change schools until the 2019-20 school year.
