Parents at Echo Farms and Rivers Edge upset over redistricting options

As New Hanover County plans to redistrict its middle schools, some parents are unhappy about plans for their kids. Parents in the Echo Farms and Rivers Edge communities are upset that their kids are tentatively scheduled to be moved from Myrtle Grove to Williston Middle School.

John Hirchak and other parents will meet Tuesday night to discuss their battle against the school board. County middle schools must be redistricted for the 2010-2011 school year, because a new school is being built in the northern part of the county.

The plans are still in the early stages and the board is considering a few options, but Hirchak and others demand that a new map be drawn that doesn’t move their kids from the closest, to one of the furthest middle schools from their neighborhood.

“They have asked over and over again from Echo Farms and Rivers Edge to give, give, give and we just want our children to be in our neighborhood schools,” Hirchak said.

The parents will hold their meeting at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at the Echo Farms Club House.
