Redistricting Project Plan and Timeline
McKissick Associates is the firm that has been selected for the project. The study timeline is now published and involves 3 phases. The first phase concluding at the end of December.
The first phase involves the collection and assembly of known information and past history of the district with regard to enrollment, population, class size policies and classroom use. During this phase, InSights will also interview municipal managers in order to identify the number, type and timeline for future housing developments and the potential impact of new students stemming from such growth. This phase establishes a factual baseline of past enrollment trends and identifies where and to what degree enrollment might change over the course of the next 5 to 20 years.
If after phase one, McKissick Associates InSights' numbers suggest that the likely growth will have limited impact resulting in a reasonably balanced distribution across the district, the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board may determine that further investigation is not necessary at this time.
Should potential growth indicate a less than optimal balance for the future, then McKissick will continue on to the next phase.
