Redistricting Meetings

CODE BLUE!!!!! 
NORTH FULTON COUNTY SCHOOL REDISTRICTING MEETINGS 

Schools are one of the TOP criteria for home buyers. The outcome of the redistricting will affect EVERYONE’s home value. 

Please plan to attend all of these meetings. PLEASE WEAR BLUE (CENTENNIAL BLUE IF POSSIBLE) SHIRTS TO THE MEETING SO WE CAN IDENTIFY THOSE IN THE CENTENNIAL CLUSTER. 

The criteria used by Fulton County Board of Education is also listed below. 

October 8th- Centennial High School 7pm-9pm 
November 5 Alpharetta High School 7pm – 9pm 
December 10 Centennial High School 7pm-9pm 

Primary Criteria

  • Geographic Proximity – Distance traveled using available routes of transportation.
  • Instructional Capacity – Number of students who can be accommodated at the school, taking into account the number of classrooms and resource rooms needed for art, music, labs, English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), special education and Talented and Gifted (TAG) programs.
  • Projected Enrollment – Number of students assigned to a school, taking into account the future projected enrollment. 


Secondary Criteria

When primary criteria indicate more than one option, options are evaluated on the basis of:


  • Traffic Patterns – Factors impacting accessibility of the school from all portions of the attendance zone, including travel time, traffic flow in the area, safe operation of school buses and other safety considerations. 
  • Previous Rezoning – The school system seeks to avoid rezoning neighborhoods more than once during a three-year period if facility sizes and geographic distribution of student populations allows.
  • Special Programs – Special programs are those serving children with special needs that require use of additional space over and above a regular classroom. Where possible, the school system avoids setting attendance zones that would place a disproportionate number of special programs at a school.
  • School Feeder Alignment – Where possible, consideration is given to the alignment of elementary, middle and high school attendance boundaries.
