• CMS leaders to finalize student reassignment survey


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Channel 9 will learn more Tuesday night about a plan to send thousands of Charlotte-Mecklenburg School students to different schools.

    Eyewitness News will get a first look at a survey parents can fill out to tell the district their thoughts about improving academics and diversity.

    The survey is 17 pages and there are 40 questions. The results could have a major impact on every student in CMS.

    School board leaders are going to talk about the controversial plan Tuesday night and take a look at what other school districts across the country have done in similar situations.

    Leaders want to make schools more diverse and even the playing field for low income students, and will get input from the survey.

    Parents will answer questions about school diversity, teaching styles, their children's friends and income levels. Some parents are worried the results could force their students to attend a different school farther from home.

    The survey will be emailed to parents on Friday.

    Channel 9 will follow developments out of Tuesday’s meeting and will bring you all the new information about the student reassignment plan on Eyewitness News at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
