A redistricting plan was presented to Hamilton Southeastern Schools board of school trustees Wednesday night. The proposed plan would help the district reduce crowding in schools and prepare for the opening of a new elementary school.
The plan would redistrict an estimated 2,265 students in HSE’s elementary, intermediate and junior high schools. During the 2017-18 school year, there were over 21,600 students enrolled in the district.
Southeastern Elementary School is slated to open next school year, and was built for over 600 students to attend.
Even with the proposed plan, several schools would still be slightly over capacity.
The proposed plan reccomends that 3rd, 5th and 7th-grade students could choose to stay with their same school a final year. However, the district would not provide transportation.
The proposed plan is scheduled for a vote Dec. 12 at the HSE Board of School Trustees meeting.
