Valdosta City Schools to Host First Public Input Meetings on Redistricting Tonight

Share with friends

valdosta-city-schools-logoVALDOSTA, GA – Valdosta City Schools recently announced that we will host a series of public input meetings on the subject of redistricting the elementary school zones.  Redistricting is necessary as attendance zones have grown disproportionately to the capacity of each school in the system.

The system will host four public input meetings.  We wanted to provide clarification on the purpose of the first two meetings.  The members of the Valdosta Board of Education would like to invite parents to attend these first two sessions to voice their opinions on the current elementary attendance zones and how the new zones could be redrawn.  These meetings will be held:

·         Tuesday, February 11 at 7:00 pm in the Sallas Mahone Elementary School Gymnasium

·         Tuesday, February 18 at 7:00 pm in the J.L. Lomax Elementary School Gymnasium

The next two meetings will then be an opportunity for the Board to show the proposed zoning maps that are created based on feedback and suggestions that are gathered from the two public input meetings.  These meetings will be held:

·         Thursday, March 13 at 7:00 pm in the S.L. Mason Elementary School Gymnasium

·         Tuesday, March 18 at 7:00 pm in the W.G. Nunn Elementary School Gymnasium

We will be offering transportation to the February 18th public input meeting.  Reservations must be made in advance by calling the Transportation Department between 9:00 am and 1:30 pm no later than Friday, February 14.  Transportation will also be offered for the March 13th meeting.  Reservations for that meeting must be made in advance during the same hours prior to March 11th.  The number for the Transportation Department is (229) 245-5640.  For more information about the redistricting process, please contact Valdosta City Schools at (229) 333-8500.
