ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Albemarle County Public Schools will be holding a public hearing regarding a redistricting recommendation.

On Feb. 22, the Albemarle County School Board heard from Superintendent Dr. Matthew Haas regarding boundary changes for several schools in the northern part of the county.

Now there will be a public hearing on those recommended changes on March 14 and then the board will vote on the plan.

According to a release, the scenarios for redistricting were the culmination of work by the Redistricting Advisory Committee 2023-24, which began meeting to discuss enrollment changes at several elementary schools in northern Albemarle County in October.

The committee was assigned to work on overcrowding issues at Baker-Butler Elementary, decreasing enrollment at Woodbrook Elementary, increasing enrollment at Stony Point Elementary, and selecting a location for a new elementary school to be built in the Northern Feeder Pattern.

“We asked this committee to do something that is next to impossible: To thread the needle between where their heart lies as parents and neighbors and what is best for the students in the broader community,” Haas said. “This committee took the time to review every scenario presented to them, not only for immediate impacts on the school communities, but also for the impact each option may present five or 10 years into the future. We are so incredibly grateful to each member on this committee for their dedication to Albemarle County Public Schools.”

The recommended changes include moving 42 students from the Cascadia and Riverview areas from Stone-Robinson to Stony Point; moving 59 students from the Minor Ridge Branchlands and Pine Haven areas from Woodbrook to Agnor-Hurt; and moving 88 students from the Timberwood Boulevard, Abington and Monocan Lane areas from Baker-Butler to Hollymead.

The committee also recommended putting the new elementary school in at North Pointe. That school is scheduled to open for the 2029-30 academic year.

If the school board approves the redistricting, the new boundaries will go into effect at the beginning of the 2024-25 school year, with affected families being notified this spring.

The public hearing will take place during the school board's regular meeting.
