Redistricting takes center stage in Henderson
A potential brouhaha may be brewing over a proposed redistricting effort in Henderson. The Las Vegas Sun reports a handful of schools in the southern Valley may redistrict students next Fall due to growth, and that has some Henderson parents fuming at CCSD.

Apparently, this is a regular activity. The problem is when school districts do this, schools and neighborhoods lose the continuity.

In my opinion, there has to be a better solution.

LV Sun:

Parents in a couple of Henderson neighborhoods are bracing for a fight over proposals to rezone their children to different schools next fall.

The Clark County School District’s Attendance Zone Advisory Committee took a first look Tuesday at proposals to adjust attendance zones for the next school year.

The proposals included changes to three south Henderson high schools, two middle schools and up to six elementary schools. The elementary school changes are to accommodate a new school in Anthem Highlands.

Also on the agenda are changes to accommodate three other elementary schools due to open next fall — two north of the 215 Beltway and one in Southern Highlands.

What drew the attention of parents at the initial meeting, however, were proposals to move middle school students in the Champion Village neighborhood from Bob Miller to Lyle Burkholder Middle School and to move children in the Pebble Creek neighborhood from Vanderbilt to Cox Elementary.
