Board of Education Redistricting

Please note: this process does not affect school attendance boundaries.

At its meeting on Monday, April 25, 2022, the RRPS Board of Education completed its redistricting process by adopting Plan D, one of six proposed plans. Redistricting must be completed every 10 years, following the decennial census, and re-defines the Board district boundaries so, at the time the new districts are established, each member represents roughly the same number of people (+/- 5%).
