Communication Logistics
Communication Logistics
• Committee members should have received an invite to
the Wiki group page.
• Page is merely a method to communicate between
meetings and to answer/discuss issues related to
the redistricting between meetings
• Talk with Robin Allen after the meeting if you did
not get an invite, to make sure she has your correct
contact information.
• Committee can always send emails or call Cropper GIS
and/or BCPS with questions or thoughts.
Communication Logistics
• BCPS Central Area webpage is created!:
- Helps to refer inquiring community to this
website to answer questions about the rezoning
process, schedule and a quantity of data and
maps.
- Located under “What’s Happening” section of
website (www.bcps.org)
• Direct link to page is:

Redistricting Study Project Goals
Why We’re Here
Project Objectives
1.
Baltimore County Public Schools is building a new elementary school on
the Mays Chapel site.
a) Opening in Fall 2014
b) 700-student capacity
2.
Schools throughout the region are overcrowded, and redistricting is
necessary to balance building utilization and populate the new school.
3.
BCPS has organized a committee-based process to work through
redistricting options and plans.
a) Work will continue through Winter 2014
Potential Affected Schools
Project Objectives
The following schools
in the Central Area
could be affected by
the redistricting
process:
1. Hampton ES
2. Lutherville ES
3. Padonia ES
4. Pinewood ES
5. Pot Spring ES
6. Riderwood ES
7. Sparks ES
8. Timonium ES
9. Warren ES

New school
at Mays
Chapel Site
Why We’re Here
Guiding Principles / Criteria

Efficient use of
available space (i.e.
Balance Building
Utilization)

Long-range
enrollment and
capacity needs (i.e. be
mindful of future
potential population
in addition to existing
students)

Use natural
boundaries, such as
railroads, creeks,
major highways,
election districts,
existing school
boundaries, and
location of feeder
schools.
Why We’re Here
Guiding Principles / Criteria

Cost containment (i.e. Efficiencies such as
transportation and facility use)

Elimination of existing satellite zones
(areas districted to a school that are outside
of its boundary)

Minimize the number of times any one
student is reassigned

Feeder pattern continuity

Phasing in boundary changes by grade
levels for high schools

Maintaining diversity among all involved

Review of DRAFT Options
Remember that everything is considered DRAFT!
• Nothing is written in stone
• Existing DRAFT Options are subject to change
• New options can/will be created
• Focus isn’t on picking the best solution YET, but to
openly explore the various options to present to the
public for feedback.
3 DRAFT Options are presented to you this evening
• Committee has 8.5x11 maps, as well as plots of maps for
review tonight
• Options maps are also now on the interactive webmap
(www.croppermap.com/bcpsredistricting)
• Copies of handouts, including small and large format
maps will be posted on the Mays Chapel webpage on the
BCPS website
(http://www.bcps.org/construction/mayschapel/)
When analyzing redistricting options, it is best to look at
the information in two different ways.
• Study the geography i.e. shape of the current and option
boundary lines.
• Look at where the lines shift away from current vs. the
option.
• Look at road networks and envision how school buses
and parents would travel to the school
• Study the tables and enrollment / utilization estimate
• Review the balance of enrollment, and identify any
imbalances that may exist.
• Understand why there are any imbalances in the
enrollment / utilization, or examine possible ways to
improve the balance.
