Crowd fills NHC School Board meeting, concerned over redistricting

An overflow crowd at Tuesday night's New Hanover County School Board meeting had plenty to say about middle school redistricting. At the center of the crowd that spilled out into the hallway, Ogden parents who don't want their children bussed to the Holly Shelter Middle School when it opens in 2010. Ogden resident Tim Davis wants the board to consider more neighborhood school options with new replacement maps. “I'm not sure if the board will actually go with the people here and re-do the maps so that schools will represent neighborhood schools,” Davis said. “That's my biggest concern right now. We're all taxpayers and our voice should be heard.” Three re-districting forums are scheduled to be held this month in New Hanover County. The first will be Tuesday at Myrtle Grove Middle School at 7:00 p.m.
