School Board to form redistricting committee
By TARA REILLY / Staff Writer
The Washington County School Board voted Tuesday night to form a committee that will study the redistricting of school boundaries.
The Facilities Enrollment and Advisory Committee had been pushing for a redistricting committee for more than a year, according Jenny Belliotti, chairwoman of the enrollment committee.
The enrollment committee, made up of parents and school staff, is charged with studying various aspects related to school capacity and then making recommendations.
The committee has recommended that a redistricting committee look at all schools in the county, in particular the high schools. It also recommended taking students out of Boonsboro, North Hagerstown and Williamsport high schools and sending them to South Hagerstown High School.
