Are you building a new home in Waxhaw? Are you buying or selling a home?
One of the fastest growing areas surrounds Kensington Elementary School and includes the neighborhoods of Cureton, Quellin, Millbridge, Anklin Forrest and Lawson.
We want you to be aware that it is uncertain where your elementary-age children will attend school this fall. Even if your home's MLS Listing states "Kensington Elementary" as its assigned school, that information is not current.
Kensington Elementary School's enrollment has been capped by Union County Public Schools due to its current over capacity levels. No new students will be allowed to enroll from now until the end of the school year.
If you close on your new home after November 13, 2013, your elementary student will be attending Waxhaw Elementary for the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year.
The Union County Board of Education (BOE or "school board") will be analyzing population and neighborhood reports over the next few months to formulate its Redistricting Plan for the 2014-2015 school year.
It is unknown at this time where elementary-age students in each neighborhood will attend school next year.
We will do our best to keep you informed.
We know that moving to a new neighborhood, city or state requires research and planning and your child's school is a big part of that decision.
Waxhaw Elementary is a great school. It is just a longer bus ride or car ride for our zoned Kensington Elementary neighbors.
Keep up-to-date on school board meetings on the UCPS Redistricting Facebook page too.
