On June 11, Charles County’s Board of Education approved Superintendent James Richmond’s recommendation of a modified Proposal B. The plan creates an attendance zone for St. Charles High School, which will serve 956 students in August of 2014; thereby relieving overcrowding at the six existing high schools.
The approved plan takes effect in August 2014 and moves incoming 9th, 10th and 11th graders, which are students in grades 7, 8 and 9 this school year. St. Charles is opening with grades 9, 10 and 11 and seniors in the Class of 2015 will finish at and graduate from their current school.
The modification allows for current eighth- and ninth-grade students who live in Block 3750 and were required to change from Theodore G. Davis Middle School to Matthew Henson Middle School as a result of redistricting to remain at North Point High School with transportation until they graduate. There are 76 students eligible for the modification. Current seventh graders living in Block 3750 will be required to attend Maurice J. McDonough High School in school year 2014-15.
