MCPS Redistricting Info


This site will provide information related to the 2018/2019 Redistricting Process in Montgomery County Public Schools.

Event Timeline

November 27, 2018 - The Redistricting Committee met. A presentation and timeline were provided. The committee also reviewed a planning block map.

October 16, 2018 - A Timeline of Study for the redistricting process and and a list of Redistricting criteria were presented to the School Board.

October 9, 2018 - Letters go home with CES/CPS families announcing the redistricting process.

2014-2018 - MCPS worked with community partners to gather input on building needs in Christiansburg. The expansion of Falling Branch Elementary and the plan to build a new, larger elementary school in the Belview area creates more room for students at both schools. Moving some students from CPS/CES to these schools will alleviate overcrowding at CPS/CES.


What is redistricting?

Redistricting is the process of redrawing attendance lines for schools.

Why will students only be moved from CES/CPS?

Christiansburg Primary and Christiansburg Elementary are over capacity. The expansion at Falling Branch Elementary has created room for 30-50 families to move. When a new Belview-area school is built, we expect that it will be large enough to accommodate the current students at Belview and up to half of CES and CPS.

How many students will be moved from CES/CPS?

Approximately 30-50 students will be moved from CES/CPS to Falling Branch. An additional 300 students will be slated to go to the new Belview-area school when it opens. (These numbers are approximate. Firm estimates will be available a the committee meets and discusses options.)

What is the current enrollment and capacity at CPS and CES?

Christiansburg Primary School can hold 342 students and has 511 K-2 students enrolled.

Christiansburg Elementary School can hold 266 students and has 462 3-5 students enrolled.
