The New Hanover County School Board is taking another look at middle school redistricting. After the board made some last minute changes to redistricting plan 2-C, parents voiced concerns.
Instead of going to their annual retreat later this month, board members decided to meet again and see if they could reach a more favorable solution. Board member Janice Cavenaugh says that this is one of the toughest issues she's faced in her 23 years on the board.
"We could go ahead, and we could vote," Cavenaugh said, "but we're trying to listen to people and we're trying to be open."
The March 5 deadline for a decision is quickly approaching. A final plan is expected to be presented at the next board meeting March 2.
