2017-2018 REDISTRICTING PROCESS

 Ferndale Early Education Center, George Cromwell and Hilltop Elementary

A committee of parents and community residents is studying the possibilities with regard to adjusting the boundaries for students at the Ferndale Early Education Center and George Cromwell and Hilltop elementary schools.

The committee will study options available, to the extent possible, to best utilize space being created by the $32.7 million revitalization project now under way at George Cromwell Elementary School. The project will create room for an additional 130 students, potentially allowing kindergarten students now at Ferndale to move to Cromwell.

An organizational meeting of the committee was held on October 19, 2017.

The committee is also scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. on October 26, 2017, at the Ferndale Early Education Center, located at 105 Packard Ave. in Glen Burnie.


Maryland City Elementary 

A committee of parents and community residents has studied the possibilities with regard to redistricting Maryland City Elementary School students as they transition to and attend middle school.

The committee has studied options available, to the extent possible, to better balance middle school space utilizations by potentially moving students in the Maryland City Elementary School attendance zone from MacArthur Middle School to Meade Middle School. MacArthur Middle School is at about 75 percent of state-rated capacity, and projected to be over capacity by 2021. Meade Middle School is at about 55 percent of state-rated capacity, and projected to remain well under capacity through at least 2026.

The study does not involve changing the attendance boundaries for Maryland City Elementary School.
