Newly Released Maps To Be Discussed Tonight
The proposed middle school redistricting maps will be the center of discussion at tonight's public forum at East Paulding High.
Following Tuesday’s release of new maps proposing the 2012-2013 attendance boundaries of Paulding County’s middle schools, parents, students and community members tonight will get to tell district officials what they think before the maps are finalized and brought in front of the school board. The new maps are attached to this article in PDF form.

The school system is going through the redistricting process with its middle schools as officials prepare to open this fall a ninth middle school. Today’s public forum at East Paulding High School, set for 7 p.m., is the third such opportunity for school stakeholders to learn about redistricting and where the system stands with it. While attendees in November were merely introduced to the redistricting concept, last month brought the release of the district’s first proposed maps, with interested parties weighing in less than a week later.
Remaining unchanged from the initial redistricting proposal released in December are the attendance zones of four middle schools—Austin, Hershel Jones, Scoggins and South Paulding. Those four schools remain unaffected by the redistricting process. The middle schools slated to be affected are Dobbins, East Paulding, McClure and Moses.
