Interpreting the 2022-23 Enrollment Proposal

The student enrollment proposal for 2022-2023 was unveiled yesterday on Oct. 5th. With two new elementary schools opening, and many overcrowded schools, WCPSS Student Assignment is proposing several changes in school districting to the School Board. Keep in mind these changes are now public but won’t be final and approved until the December board meeting. Here is what you need to know . . .

New Barton Pond Elementary School:

  • The new Barton Pond Elementary in North Raleigh will pull from the current base areas for Sycamore Creek, Jeffrey’s Grove, Leesville and a few others. You can check your address to see if you are proposed to attend one of the new schools. Preview Proposed Base Assignments
  • Current 4th graders (rising 5th graders) assigned to a new elementary school can apply to stay at their school under stability transfers. A younger sibling can apply to stay with them only for that 2022-23 year. Read more
  • Community feedback is welcomed and is considered as they review and revise the plan. Online Forum
