Onslow School System Looks At Dealing With Growing Student Population

There are rumblings of redistricting for the Onslow County School System, but school officials are telling parents not to be too concerned just yet.

The school system has grown by 759 students in the past year with a big chunk of population growth in western schools- Richlands Primary, Richlands Elementary and out to Dixon High School in Snead's Ferry.

Steve Myers with the school district says a Monday night meeting of the school board is not about moving children-- it's about giving the o.k. to study to plan for growth. Myers says, "What we're focusing on is looking at the criteria for redistricting policy, guidelines, so we can go forward and start doing an investigation to determine what we can do with these different solutions available to us."

School officials say there are many issues that need to be explored before deciding on any plan of action.
