BOARD OF EDUCATION UNANIMOUSLY APPROVES REDISTRICTING PLAN FOR CROFTON-AREA SCHOOLS

The Board of Education today unanimously approved Superintendent Kevin Maxwell’s proposal to redistrict Crofton-area schools beginning in 2014.

Dr. Maxwell’s recommendation was identical to that arrived at by a community panel made up of parents and community members that studied the options available to reduce overcrowding to the extent possible at Nantucket Elementary School. It calls for:

  • redistricting from Crofton Meadows Elementary, Arundel Middle, and Arundel High to Nantucket Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High those students who will live in the proposed community of Wilson’s Grove, also known as The Enclave at Reidel Pond.
  • redistricting from Nantucket Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High to Crofton Meadows Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High those students who live in the areas of Chelmsford Drive, Johns Hopkins Drive, and associated streets.
  • redistricting from Crofton Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High to Crofton Meadows Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High those students who will live in the currently undeveloped areas south of Chelmsford Drive and east of Underwood Road.

These recommendations would take effect in August 2014.

In addition, the plans calls for students in the area of Walden Drive and associated streets from Nantucket Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High to Crofton Elementary, Crofton Middle, and Arundel High. This recommendation would take effect in August 2015, following the completion of renovations to Crofton Elementary.
