Student Reassignment

  • As of June 24, 2024, Redistricting and Student Reassignment has been stopped for the 2025-2026 school year in Orange County Schools, based on a set of recommendations to the Board of Education.


    Background:

    Overcrowding in certain schools, program options, and recent legislation reducing K-3 class size, combined with the need to balance academic performance, socioeconomic indicators, and demographics led the Board of Education to seek a plan from staff to reassign students, starting in 2022.

    In December 2023, the Orange County Board of Education resolved to consider plans that were slated to take effect with the 2025-2026 school year.

    Following two meetings with the Advisory Council and additional time to reflect with staff, the Superintendent brought the following recommendations to the Board on June 24:

    • Stop redistricting for 2025-2026, and review attendance zones annually per Board Policy 4150.

    • Continue studying building utilization – how every classroom space is used – preferably twice a year.

    • Re-open transfers at Central Elementary and Pathways Elementary, currently closed to transfers during redistricting.

    • Focus on the 2024 school bond, to reduce the average age and increase overall quality of OCS facilities, aiming at permanent solutions to serve students in every school.

    Note:

    This page will be updated with information about future redistricting efforts, as it becomes available.
