Carroll school officials have proposed four redistricting options for Cranberry Station Elementary School, which opens in Westminster in August 1999.
Option one would limit the redistricting to students attending the five Westminster area elementary schools. The students would remain in the Westminster High School district.
Option two would affect 12 schools and include three redistricting scenarios.
In the first, Friendship Valley students who currently advance to West Middle and South Carroll High would instead attend Winfield Elementary, New Windsor Middle and South Carroll.
In the second, some New Windsor Middle School students would move to Northwest Middle School.
In the third, Westminster Elementary, West Middle and Westminster High School students who live near Runnymede Elementary would attend Runnymede, Northwest Middle and Francis Scott Key High School.
Option three would redistrict Westminster area elementary schools and would send some students to Runnymede, Northwest Middle and Francis Scott Key High schools.
Option four would redistrict Westminster area elementary schools and would send some students to Winfield Elementary, New Windsor Middle and South Carroll High schools. This proposal also includes sending children from New Windsor Middle to Northwest Middle.
After reviewing public comment, school staff will recommend a redistricting plan for Cranberry Station to the Board of Education at its March 11 meeting.
The board has scheduled a special meeting at 7 p.m. April 16 at Westminster High School to hear final public comment. The board is expected to vote on the proposal afterward.
