REASSIGNMENT PROCESSAppoint a division reassignment committeeBuild consensus on board priority for outcome of redistrictingEngage ORED to begin the demographic workApprove reassignment schedule with anticipated implementation August 2013
Proposed Reassignment Guidelines Contiguous boundaries: Attempt to maintain contiguous school boundaries without using satellite attendance areas. Respect neighborhoods: Avoid dividing easily recognized “neighborhoods” or identified “developments” or “sub- divisions” unless it is necessary to meet other guidelines. Whenever possible and practical use major highways, railroads, rivers, and streams as natural boundaries. Proximity to schools: While it is recognized that all students cannot be assigned to their closest school, consider students proximity to other schools when creating school boundaries.
Proposed Reassignment Guidelines Modify feeder systems: In order to maximize facility use and establish reasonable numbers of students at each site, consider the use of 6 middle school feeder systems instead of 5. This would allow smaller, more instructionally suited middle schools and less dependence on mobile classrooms. Stay within enrollment capacities: Unless it is likely that a school enrollment will be declining, assign students to the four high schools in a way that their enrollments are under established capacities. Consider anticipated growth: Enrollment growth patterns should be taken into consideration, where feasible, to ensure that anticipated growth will not adversely impact one school significantly more than the others. Enrollment balance: In keeping with the intent of SB612, attempt to balance the percentage of academic and economic populations at each middle and high school.
Ensure Compliance with Targets Outlined in Senate Bill 612 Sec. 17. (a) The Interim Board and the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education shall make their best efforts to achieve a racial balance in student enrollment, within plus or minus 12 percentage points of the system wide average minority student enrollment at the following schools: Rocky Mount Senior High, Northern Nash Senior High and any new high school within the Nash-Rocky Mount School Administrative Unit, and any middle or junior high school that feeds any of these high schools. A school will be considered to be in substantial compliance with the racial balance objectives of this paragraph if its racial balance is plus or minus 18 percentage points of the system wide average minority student enrollment. (b) For all schools other than those covered in subsection (a) of this section, the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education will promote reasonable and practical racial balance in the schools, utilizing and preserving neighborhood and voluntary schools to the maximum extent permitted by the Constitution, and consistent with sound educational practices.
