District Releases Draft Map For South County Redistricting
Public Forum For All Affected Schools December 7th
The Cobb County School District has released a new draft map for the pending south county elementary school redistricting.
The new map incorporates community input received following the release
of two redistricting options in October, and consolidates the two options into a single draft map. District planners have
tried to incorporate community preferences wherever feasible. At this time, no final decisions have been made and public
input on the single draft map is welcome. The District will host a final forum Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at South
Cobb High School. Parents, students and staff from all affected elementary schools are invited to attend.
A bold black line on the new draft map indicates the two areas and phases of implementation; schools on the west side of
the line will be part of the Phase 1 implementation effective in August 2012, including Austell Primary, Austell Intermediate,
Birney, Bryant, Clarkdale, Clay, Hollydale, Mableton, Milford, Riverside Primary, Riverside Intermediate, Russell, Sanders and
Sky View. Schools on the east side of the line will be part of the Phase 2 implementation, effective in August 2013 when the
new Smyrna elementary school opens its doors. Phase 2 schools include Argyle, Belmont Hills, Brown, the Fitzhugh Lee Center
of H.A.V.E.N. Academy, Green Acres, Harmony Leland, King Springs, LaBelle, Milford, Nickajack, Norton Park and Teasley.
The District is accepting public comment on the draft map via the December 7 public forum, the 'Public Comment Wall' on
the redistricting section of the website, and via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Following a review of community input
from the last forum, a final proposed redistricting map will be developed and presented to the Board of Education for a vote
in February 2012.
