Subdistrict changes proposed for second reading on December 14
After the federal census is conducted — every 10 years — the Board works with the Lancaster County election commissioner to adjust the seven subdistrict boundaries to account for changes in population. The requirement is that each subdistrict be substantially equal in population.
There are roughly 295,000 people in the LPS school district, meaning each LPS subdistrict will have approximately 42,000 people. Deadline for Board approval of the new subdistrict divisions is the end of the calendar year.
The Board held a first reading on the proposed changes during the November 23 Regular Meeting, and will vote on the proposal at the December 14 Regular Meeting.
