Board postpones vote on three proposals

October 18, 2007|By ERIN CUNNINGHAM

Washington County Board of Education members did not vote Tuesday on three of the more controversial redistricting proposals.

Board members have postponed making a decision on those changes, which would move a total of 23 students from Boonsboro Elementary School and 123 students from Greenbrier Elementary School to Rockland Woods Elementary School.

The board said Tuesday that it would vote on those proposals Nov. 20.

Former Board Member Jacqueline Fischer said she was concerned about delays in the redistricting process. She asked that the board adopt all 20 proposals immediately.

"I have grave concerns that the redistricting process is becoming mired in political agendas rather than moving forward with the best interest of the school system and its 21,000 students," she said.

Fischer said that a delay in redistricting would mean that Greenbrier would remain severely overcrowded.

Board Vice President Wayne D. Ridenour said that Greenbrier is at 142 percent of state-rated capacity.
