The Department of Justice is now reviewing Beaufort County's proposed new school districts.
The Beaufort County School Board voted 5-4 to select alternative one as they work to redraw school district lines following the 2010 census. School leaders are trying to equalize the number of people within each school district, which is out of balance, according to the new census numbers.
The federal government will take 60 days to review the proposed maps. Upon approval, the Beaufort County School System plans to have the redistricting complete by February, when candidates for school board file for the next election.
