CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Bell time changes, elementary school redistricting, changing bus routes and middle school and high school transitions could mean a Rubik's Cube of scheduling issues over the next three years in the Chambersburg Area School District, prompting the school board Wednesday night to consider delaying redistricting a year. In upcoming weeks, the district will consider whether to hire a consultant or plan the redistricting in-house. The basic outline of the plan has to take into account consolidation of elementary schools, creation of two middle schools for grades six through eight at Chambersburg Area Middle School and Faust Junior High School and moving the ninth grade from Faust into an expanded Chambersburg Area Senior High School.

Washington County Board of Education President Roxanne Ober said Sunday that the redistricting of some county schools will be necessary after a new elementary school and replacement schools for two others are built. The school board will vote Feb. 6 whether to ask an advisory committee to review enrollment data and other information related to redistricting. Ober said the last major redistricting in the county was more than five years ago. Minor redistricting that affects only one or two families occurs more often, she said.
