Committee Recommendation Finalized
The committee finalized their recommendation at the October 6th meeting. Afterwards a written report was prepared that summarizes the process, criteria considered, and the recommendation itself.
Final Recommendation, Redistricting Advisory Committee
Please note, the final decision rests with the School Board so nothing is final until the board’s decision is made.
As the result of current and projected student enrollment exceeding capacity at Albemarle High School and Greer Elementary School, the Albemarle County School Board voted on April 2, 2015, to establish a redistricting advisory committee to study and recommend options for addressing classroom space needs at both schools.
Student enrollment capacity at Albemarle High School is 1,819, and the school currently enrolls 1,930 students. At least 110 students are projected to be added to the school’s student population over the next five years. Greer currently has 581 students against its capacity of 580 and is projected to be nearly 80 students beyond that level within the next five years.
The committee will have two objectives: to recommend options to address the current and projected student enrollment overcapacity at Albemarle High and Greer Elementary, and to study how northern feeder pattern enrollment projections might impact future additions at Woodbrook Elementary School and either Western or Monticello High School.
As specified by the School Board, the advisory committee will be appointed by Superintendent Pam Moran and will include two volunteers from each of the division’s three feeder patterns. Also on the committee will be a member of the Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee and an equity and diversity representative. Rosalyn Schmitt, assistant director of facilities planning for the division, will serve as the committee’s facilitator and coordinate support from school division staff.

The advisory committee will begin meeting in April, hold community meetings in May and June, and present their options in the fall. Under the present schedule, the Superintendent will review those options and make her recommendation to the School Board in October. The Board would hold a public hearing in November followed by their final decisions.
All committee meetings will be held at Albemarle High School's Media Center at 7pm. These meetings are open to the public for observation.
