From Harford County Public Schools:
The second revision to the Proposed Elementary Redistricting Plan is now posted on the Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) website, hcps.org. The Superintendent’s Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) has been meeting almost daily to adjust proposed attendance areas to address community feedback and issues that still needed to be resolved. The ‘School Locator’ has also been updated to reflect the latest modifications.
The revised plan is still a proposal, and additional changes may occur before the proposed plan becomes final when the Board of Education of Harford County votes on it at the end of February.
The dates of the remaining meetings regarding the elementary redistricting process are below (public comment accepted at all meetings, unless otherwise noted). All hearings are scheduled to be held from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., unless noted differently below. The public is invited to attend any hearing date or location to share comments and proposals. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. Comment cards will be available at the doors and must be filled out prior to the start of the meetings.
