Some parents of elementary school children may send their kids to a different school in the fall. Onslow County Schools are working through the process of redistricting.
School officials list two reasons for redistricting their elementary schools. They are opening a new elementary school in Fall 2009. Officials also cite "extreme growth" as a factor for the need for change.
Onslow County Schools are accepting comments from the public through January 16. There have been some pubic information meetings. Another one is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Richlands Elementary.
People can email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also send comments in writing to:
