CMS parents get chance to discuss school assignment boundaries Monday

Last week CMS parents found out where their children will be attending school next year. On Monday, parents will get a chance to weigh in on the district's boundary reassignments.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- CMS parents will get a chance to weigh in Monday after finding out where their children could be attending school in the coming years.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools released proposed school assignment boundary changes Tuesday last week.

On Monday, parents of students at schools affected by the new proposal will get a chance to weigh in. 

CMS board members will meet with parents at Nathaniel Alexander Elementary, Moorehead and Martin Elementary Schools at 9 a.m. Monday.

The meetings are so the board members and parents can address efficiency, continued academic excellence and improved diversity throughout CMS classrooms.

The proposals, which affect 75 schools in CMS, will be implemented no sooner than the start of the 2018-19 school year, according to officials. 

Students that will be enrolled in the fifth, eighth or 12th grades next school year will be permitted to remain at their current school assignment for that year, CMS said Tuesday. Rising juniors in high school will also be allowed to remain at their current school for both the 2018-19 and 2018-20 school years.

According to CMS, the proposed boundaries will improve school proximity for students in 14 schools, improve feeds for 13 schools, and improve diversity in 21 schools.
