In case you haven’t seen it yet, the Board of Education for the Union County Public Schools has a YouTube Channel, in which they live stream and record BOA meetings.
The latest meeting shared is from this week in which the board heard from the Student Realignment Citizens Advisory Committee on their recommendations for redistricting.
The committee, as expected, recommended plan BF1. You can see maps related to that plan here:

Update from the UCPS web site:
At its Jan. 23 meeting, the Student Realignment Citizens Advisory Committee voted to recommend Option BF1 to the Board of Education for approval. There were some modifications to BF1 that will be posted by Jan. 27. The Board will review the recommendation and hold several meetings to discuss next steps for the realignment process.
Please see map for boundaries here, and selection Option BF1 with proposed committee changes.
We just posted an update on our blog regarding UCPS student realignment / redistricting.
Check our blog for details, but it appears that many current UCPS students may be eligible to remain in their current school, even if their official school assignment changes.
As always, please ask one of our exceptional Realtors if you have questions about how the student realignment / redistricting may affect your home sale or purchase.
Here’s a very helpful map showing any school redistricting changes that may occur based on the different proposed plans.
Just plug in your address and select the various plans to see how or if the school assignments change.

Updated September 2017
Union County Public Schools may be redistricted again in the near future.
Here’s what we know:
* UCPS formed a “Student Realignment Citizens Advisory Committee” in the Summer of 2017 to review options for redrawing the district lines. Meeting notes from the committee’s meetings can be found on the district’s web site here.
* The committee has issued an online survey for residents to have a voice in the research process. Survey responses are accepted now through October 3, 2017.
* There appears to be four redistricting plans being considered. Possible changes for some neighborhoods under each of those plans can be found on this PDF document on the UCPS public Google drive.
Please note that not all neighborhoods are represented on this document; it could be that further changes are currently being researched and discussed based on the results of the community survey.
We will continue to post about redistricting news are we hear it.
As always, we advise buyers to verify home schools with the school district before making a home buying decision.

Updated February 2014
Many schools in the Union County Public Schools district have experienced recent growth in the student population. Recently, the school district announced an enrollment cap for new student registrants (registering in certain schools after November 2013) until the schools could be redistricted.
Redistricting talks for UCPS are underway. District maps have been proposed. And as of mid-February 2014, there are also talks of installing mobile classrooms funded by the county, which may alter the redistricting plans for now.
For home buyers interested in Union County as a home, it’s important to understand how possible redistricting can affect your home and neighborhood.
We’ve compiled a list of helpful links on our blog to keep you informed of proposed changes to local schools. In addition to our blog, we’ll keep you updated on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
