Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) announces a change in the location of tonight’s public meeting for the Linganore, Oakdale and Urbana High School feeder areas to learn about the start of a redistricting study to address enrollment growth and attendance areas for two new schools. The 7-8:30 p.m. meeting for Thursday, January 31 will take place in the Urbana High School auditorium instead of the Urbana Regional Library. The change was necessary to accommodate more people when an identical earlier presentation planned for January 29 was canceled due to weather. The location change was announced via FindOutFirst on January 29.
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.
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.
