Center City Transportation Zone Community Feedback Session

Myers Park High School Cafeteria
Thursday, June 14
6:00pm – 7:00pm

The Board of Education is considering a proposal to eliminate the Center City Transportation Zone. The Board and staff welcome your feedback in advance of the June 26 public hearing and Board vote.

Proposal Overview

  • Effective with the 2019-20 school year, eliminate the Center City Transportation Zone
  • Students will continue to have access to magnet programs based on their color-coded transportation zones (i.e., Blue, Green and Violet)
  • All students currently enrolled in a magnet program will continue in that magnet school through the terminal grade; the sibling guarantee will still apply
  • Students in the following high school attendance areas in the Green Transportation Zone will be transportation-eligible for Randolph IB Middle: Butler, East Mecklenburg, Independence, Providence (currently, Randolph serves the entire Green Zone)
  • Students in the following high school attendance areas in the Green Transportation Zone will be transportation-eligible for Piedmont IB Middle: Garinger, Rocky River (currently Piedmont serves only the Center City portion of the Green Zone)
