2010 U.S. Census prompts Chatham County to consider a fifth school district

Posted by on Fri, Jan 15, 2010 at 9:05 AM

Chatham County Commissioners are considering adding a fifth school district representative to the Chatham County Board of Education. Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the proposal Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Superior Courtroom in the Historic Courthouse, 12 East St., Pittsboro.

Currently, the Board of Education has five members in four districts. Two school board members are elected from District Four.

The district map shows the population disparity:

As announced in a press release:

"The Chatham Board of Commissioners is considering a unanimous request by the Chatham Board of Education to redraw the current four Board of Education Districts to be identical to the five Board of Commissioner election districts.

“After the 2010 U.S. Census, all the districts will need to be redrawn. It will be more efficient and more transparent if the Board of Education districts and the Board of Commissioner Districts are the same,” said Sally Kost, chairwoman of the Chatham County Board of Commissioners. “The Board of Education has asked us to consider this request, and we would like to hear from Chatham County citizens as to whether they think this is a good idea."
