Fulton County Board of Education School Redistricting Information
With the new Birmingham Elementary School due to open in August of 2009, the Fulton County Board of Education is in process of conducting community meetings and seeking the input from citizens regarding three current proposals for redistricting lines.
Please use these links to view the three current proposals, as well as projected attendance figures, and to provide input directly to the Board of Education.
Please note, the City of Milton does not have any input into these redistricting lines as the decisions are those of the Fulton County BOE. Community input is critical in this process and I urge you to send in your opinions.
The deadline for providing input via the online forum on the BOE website is November 21st. The BOE staff, however, will continue to receive comments via email, mail, and fax from the community through the end of November.Again, please note that the online forum will close on November 21st at noon.
The purpose of the third community meeting which is scheduled for December 10th, is to gather further input about the pros/cons of the draft plans. BOE staff will revisit the criteria and use the information collected from and after the third community forum to develop the final Board recommendation.The Board of Education will receive a recommendation in January for first reading. They are scheduled to take action in February.
