School lines to be discussed

Ellicott City and Elkridge residents are invited by the Department of Education to two public meetings on boundary line adjustments.

The meetings will help explain the superintendent's proposed capital budget, which deals with projections of numbers of students in each school.

Schools projected to be over capacity or under minimum enrollment as defined in the boundary line policy will be discussed, and redistricting alternatives will be proposed.

A meeting at Hammond High School at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday will look at boundary line changes affecting these Ellicott City or Elkridge schools: Elkridge, Deep Run, Waterloo and Worthington elementary schools; Ellicott Mills and Mayfield middle schools; and Howard High School.

Information on boundary line changes for these schools will be given at a meeting Wednesday: Centennial Lane, Northfield, St. John's Lane, Waverly and West Friendship elementary schools; Burleigh Manor, Dunloggin and Patapsco middle schools; Centennial and Mount Hebron high schools.
