The board will discuss four scenarios at Thursday’s work session
Here is the superintendent’s proposal for 2022-2023 HCPSS redistricting in order to open the new High School 13 in the fall 2023. It will impact Oakland Mills Middle and High Schools, Hammond HS, Howard HS and Long Reach HS, Mt. Hebron HS and Reservoir HS.

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.

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.

A few people approached me with questions for the presentation on HS 13 impact areas by our consultant during the HS 13 redistricting community meetings. Here is my 2019 post on this topic. You will find the polygon numbers and other relevant info.
A side note: Readers should not use that map as reference since that map was presented before the last redistricting. Many things has changed. It is unfortunate they used that map for illustration which causes confusion.

We will have three capital projects finished in FY 2023(Talbott Springs ES, HS 13 (Jessup High School), Hammond HS renovation).
Then we will have Dunloggin MS, new ES 43, Oakland Mills MS and Oakland Mills HS, Centennial HS in the pipelines. After that, we will have ES44, HS 14, Patapsco MS and Jeffers Hill ES.
What we need to do now is to ask the County to fund these projects. For all the projects, we need the county to commit the funding, then the state matching funding will come it.
