UNION COUNTY, N.C. —

The Union County school board said it plans to move forward with redistricting the county’s public schools, despite a group’s effort to stop the process.

The board met Tuesday night, only hours after the Citizens for Adequate Public Schools -- or C.A.P.S. -- filed a preliminary injunction motion in court.

Thousands of parents are upset their students have to go to a different school next year.

C.A.P.S. said the decision to redistrict the schools is illegal because it wasn’t voted on in public.
