HCPSS - Redistricting 4.19.22

Tue, 04/19/2022 - 12:40pm

Dear MHMS Families,

On January 27, 2022, the Board of Education directed that HCPSS initiate the boundary review process outlined in Policy 6010 School Attendance Areas. This review will include boundary modifications to establish an attendance area for New High School #13.

New High School #13 is scheduled to open for the 2023-24 school year with 1,658 seats. The school is located near Mission Road and Washington Boulevard (Rt. 1) in Jessup, within the current Hammond High School attendance area. The communities located in the eastern part of Howard County are most likely to be impacted by this redistricting process.

Changes in school attendance areas as a result of this process will take effect beginning the 2023-24 school year.

In March, community members were invited to attend spring community input workshops to provide input and voice their priorities related to the redistricting process. For students and families who missed this opportunity please review the items below, and complete the survey by Friday, April 22nd.
