• Redrawing Union Co. school district lines could help overcrowding

    Updated:

    UNION COUNTY, N.C. - Dozens of Union County parents showed up Thursday night to fight a redistricting plan that could affect up to 6,000 students.
     
    It was their first chance to speak directly to the school board after weeks of protesting.
     
    Leaders said redrawing lines would alleviate overcrowding.
     
    Parents said they will continue to fight for other options.

    "Our neighborhood is being split apart by the proposed redistricting if it goes through and we want to keep it together. We want to stay and go to our neighborhood school,” said Brandon Schaeffer, a parent.
     
    As an alternative, leaders discussed adding mobile classrooms to some schools.
     
    A second public hearing is scheduled for Monday night at Parkwood High School.
