TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Public Schools officials are looking for parent and staff volunteers from each of the 19 schools included in the central elementary school boundary process to serve on the project’s study committee.
Two BCPS parents and one staff committee member per school are needed to represent Carroll Manor, Cromwell Valley Regional Magnet, Halstead Academy, Hampton, Jacksonville, Lutherville Laboratory, Mays Chapel, Oakleigh, Padonia International, Pine Grove, Pinewood, Pleasant Plains, Pot Spring, Riderwood, Rodgers Forge, Stoneleigh, Timonium, Warren, and West Towson elementary schools.
The purpose of the study is to relieve enrollment pressures at central area elementary schools and to maximize use of available space in those schools. The new boundaries are slated to go into effect for the 2024 – 2025 school year.
Community members interested in serving on the committee are encouraged to express interest by Friday, August 4, 2023.
Those interested in participating on the boundary study committee should complete the Committee Member Interest Form or contact their school’s principal.
Boundary study committee members will be selected this summer and will convene in September 2023. Between September 2023 and January 2024, the group will meet seven times, including the hosting of two public information meetings. In February and March of 2024, the Board of Education will receive a committee recommendation, hold a public hearing, and take action on the recommendation.
More information on the role and responsibilities of the boundary study committee members, on how to stay informed throughout the process, and on providing feedback may be found on the Central Area Elementary School Capacity Relief Boundary Study website.
