School Redistricting Follow-up Meeting

Approximately 50 River Hill residents attended the School Redistricting Forum held by the Association on September 8, 2017. Renee DuBois, a River Hill Board Member, gave an overview of the redistricting process. David Thalheimer, a River Hill resident, summarized the impact of the proposals on students living in the village. Patti and Roger Caplan, River Hill residents, gave pointers on how best to communicate with the decisionmakers and have a constructive impact. The attendees then separated into groups to identify issues and strategize. An email list was compiled and shared enabling participants to communicate and continue to build their positions. The Association received considerable positive feedback following this Forum and the Board of Directors has approved a follow-up meeting to be held on Monday, October 9, 2017, at 6:30 p.m.
This follow-up session will follow the Superintendent’s presentation of the plan to the Board of Education on October 3, 2017. A representative from the Howard County Public School System’s Office of School Planning will participate. Attendees will have an additional opportunity for small group discussion and preparation of testimony prior to the BOE’s public hearings on October 26, 2017 and November 7, 2017. As with the initial Forum, this session is for residents of the Village of River Hill only. Children will not be permitted. Seating will be limited and attendees must pre-register by calling 410-531-1749. Participants will need to provide their River Hill property address when registering. Identification will also need to be provided as proof of residence to gain entry to the session.
