Administrators in the North Allegheny School District are developing a fourth redistricting scenario that takes into account feedback received from the community during focus groups.

Robert Scherer, assistant superintendent for K-12 education, told school board members Wednesday that the fourth scenario will affect fewer than 300 students.

The district is also considering allowing current fourth- and seventh-graders to remain in their schools, as long as parents provide the transportation.

“We're hearing folks loud and clear,” he said.

Administrators will have a final recommendation on redistricting at the Jan. 15 board meeting, and are asking board members to vote during a special meeting on Feb. 19.

The redistricting will take students of out Franklin Elementary, which is nearing capacity, and send them to other buildings where there is room. All seven elementary schools are affected in moving the students.

More than a dozen residents spoke Wednesday about redistricting, asking the board not to send their children to a different school.
