    9/17/2019:  On Tuesday, September 17th, 2019, the BCS Board of Education approved moving forward with Cropper GIS /McKibben as the consultants for redistricting within the school district.   Cropper GIS/McKibben will work to develop 2-3 DRAFT realignment options for Phase 1.  These options will be developed to incorporate the new Town Creek Middle School, as well as balance school building utilization across the northern district.  Once the DRAFT options are developed, Cropper GIS/McKibben representatives will meet with district staff to review and evaluate the potential boundary plans.

     
    Cropper/McKibben will facilitate a public information session in October(date to be determined), which will provide an overview of the project objectives, process and timeline.  Once presented to the board in December, the board will likely vote on a plan in January 2020.   We will update you as soon as the time, day and location is confirmed for the October informational meeting here on this page, as well as via the district wide phone service, the BCS Facebook page, and BCS Twitter feed.  Local media outlets will also be alerted to help spread the information as well to garner as much interest from the community as possible.  
     
    Below is the tentative schedule for Phase 1:
    Phase 1 timeline
     
    Cropper GIS/McKibben will work during the Fall/Winter of 2020 to study school building utilization across the remainder of the district, provide site selection recommendations for new schools(if necessary), and realignment scenarios to accompany the recommendations, given that the timeline spans into a new school year, updated 2020-2021 student databases will be collected to ensure that the most recent data is being utilized for the planning.
     
    The focus will be to provide 2-3 DRAFT realignment scenarios for the district and public to consider.  Below is the tentative schedule for Phase 2:
