School District Five launches online, interactive redistricting map

IRMO –School District Five of Lexington & Richland Counties has launched new online interactive maps to allow the community to input their address, explore the redistricting scenarios, and understand potential attendance zone changes (if any) to their families and neighborhoods. 

 

During the Board meeting on Oct.12, School District Five’s Board of Trustees heard a presentation outlining scenarios for redistricting. Engineering and planning firm Milone & MacBroom was approved by the Board in October 2019 to study capacity and growth in School District Five.

 

The study by the company was prompted by growth in the Chapin area and a need to redistrict for the planned new elementary school in Chapin, but the firm’s study also examines capacity and growth across the district as part of that process. 

 

Community input opportunities on proposed redistricting plans will be held prior to a final vote, to gain input from the community.
