PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Pender County Board of Education is considering two plans for redistricting elementary school students.
The two existing school districts would be divided into three, because of the new Topsail Elementary School in Hampstead.
The new school will open at the existing Topsail Middle School building in the fall of 2009.
A public hearing to discuss the new districts will be held Thursday, Jan. 15 at South Topsail Elementary School at 7:00 PM.
There will be another hearing Jan. 20 at North Topsail Elementary at 7:00 PM.
The board plans to adopt a redistricting plan on Feb. 9, 2009.
