New! Proposed Realignment Plan
The UCPS Board of Education met on December 6, 2016 and decided to look into a new student realignment plan. The proposal looks like it will focus on neighborhood schools and allow students to attend the school closest to their home. After UCPS’s last redistricting shakeup and student disruption, the board would like to have a “no questions asked” waiver that would allow students to stay at their current school if they so choose. View the board meeting here.

Past redistricting news:
7/8/2014: Union County has made “minor” adjustments to the maps based on transportation. See the revised maps HERE.
3/4/2014: The Union County Board of Education voted to approve the UCPS redistricting plan. They are allowing a few exceptions. Rising 5th and 8th graders can apply to stay at their current school, however, transportation would not be provided. Current high schools students can also apply to finish out at their current school with the same stipulation. Appears that MillBridge will be allowed to stay together as a community as long as a connecting road is built.
Proposed redistricting maps were released to the public. Major changes for Weddington and Waxhaw may include Weddington Chase and Hollister moving to Weddington, Highgate moving to Antioch, and Callonwood moving to Sun Valley. Wesley Chapel neighborhoods would dramatically be affected with many moving to Sun Valley.
