CMS is hosting several workshops in the coming days where they are going to review many of their operations—one of which is how school boundaries are formed. Mint Hill, perhaps more than any community, exposed CMS’s boundary policies when CMS was deciding who to send to the new Rocky River High School in Mint Hill. Now, CMS wants to know how it could decide boundaries, as well as other issues, better than they have in the past.
The Board of Education seeks input for its comprehensive review of the school district. Titled “The Case for Continuous Improvement: A Comprehensive Review of CMS,” the review addresses district issues including magnet schools, transportation, boundaries, projected enrollments and use of facilities.
Forums will be held on the following dates and times:
June 21, Harding High (2001 Alleghany St.) at 6:30 p.m.
June 22, Government Center (600 E. Fourth St.) at 6 p.m.
June 24, South Mecklenburg High (8900 Park Road) at 6:30 p.m.
June 28, Hopewell High (11530 Beatties Ford Road) at 6:30 p.m.
The Board of Education will also hold three workshops before July 4 to discuss the information collected from the public.
