School slated to open for 2014-15 school year

What: The committee charged with considering where to draw attendance boundary lines for the new elementary school at Mays Chapel will begin a series of meetings that will ultimately determine boundary line recommendations to be made to the Board of Education. The committee, which is composed of school officials, parents, community members, and representatives of schools likely to be affected by the new attendance lines, will discuss and weigh data and options before developing possible scenarios for stakeholders to consider. Individuals who are not on the committee are welcome to attend its meetings to observe the process, but not to actively participate.

Following a public forum on the scenarios scheduled for Wednesday, December 11, at Dulaney High School, the committee is scheduled to incorporate public input into the decision-making process and select a scenario to present to the Board of Education for approval in January.
