2022 HCPSS Feasibility Study

2022 HCPSS Feasibility Study is available now. This is to help the board to define the boundary of High School 13 (at Jessup, along the mission road), which will be opened in Fall 2023. There are four redistricting scenarios discussed in the study.

Here is how to find your polygon number: https://chaowu.org/2017/06/24/how-to-find-hcpss-school-polygon-map-number/

Scenario A

Scenario B

Scenario C

Scenario D

Just as I said during the last redistricting in 2019, we should define the core area for High School 13 at that time to reduce unnecessary moves this year. Unfornatuely the majority of the board did not listen to me and we are facing a large reshuffling again. It will be a huge challenge for students, and families. At the same time, let’s get excited for a new high school opening. The last new high school is Marriotts Ridge High School, which opened in 2005, 17 years ago.

2022-2023 HCPSS redistricting for new High School 13

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 1,680 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.
