FCPS to Hold Redistricting Meetings

FCPS to Hold Redistricting Meetings

Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) invites the public in the Linganore, Oakdale and Urbana High School feeder areas to attend one of two meetings this month about the school system’s new Linganore-Oakdale-Urbana redistricting study. Elementary attendance areas included in the study are Centerville, Deer Crossing, Green Valley, Kemptown, Liberty, New Market, Oakdale, Spring Ridge, Twin Ridge and Urbana. Middle school attendance areas include Governor Thomas Johnson, New Market, Oakdale, Urbana and Windsor Knolls. The high schools are Linganore, Oakdale and Urbana. 

 

Although the meetings will take place at two locations to provide a broader opportunity for community involvement, the same presentation is planned for each meeting. The first meeting is Tuesday, January 29 from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Oakdale High School auditorium, 5850 Eaglehead Drive, Ijamsville, MD 21754. The second meeting is Thursday, January 31 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Natelli Community Room at the Urbana Regional Library, 9020 Amelung Street, Frederick, MD 21704.

 

The redistricting study is necessary to establish new attendance boundaries and feeder patterns to accommodate new schools and increased capacity. The new schools are Sugarloaf Elementary on Stone Barn Drive in Urbana, which is temporarily serving Urbana Elementary students until the Urbana Elementary replacement is complete for the 2020-2021 school year, and a not-yet-named elementary school in the Lake Linganore Hamptons West neighborhood opening for the 2021-2022 school year.
