The Marnel C. Moorman School, the newest K - 8 facility located at 501 Discovery Boulevard, is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019 with a capacity of 800 students. A committee consisting of parents, teachers and administrators across the Shelby County District has been formed to study the boundaries of current schools and the enrollment and capacity of each elementary and middle school. Their task is to create new boundaries for each school which will allow operation to occur at a target of 80% capacity in all of the district’s elementary schools. Approximately 300 elementary students and 300 middle school students will be redistricted to Marnel C. Moorman. This will reduce enrollment of other elementary schools and our high schools in the district. Eighth grade students will no longer attend SCHS or MLCHS and will attend Marnel C. Moorman, West and East. All schools will be affected by this redistricting. West Middle School will feed both Collins High School and Shelby County High School.
At this time, no plan has been finalized or voted on by the board.
SCPS will host community forums to receive input on the redistricting plan.
Committee Members for Redistricting:
- One or Two Central Office Administrator(s): Mike Clark (Chair)
- One Board Member -- Chair Brenda Jackson
- One Assistant Principal or Staff Member from Each School
- One Parent from Each School
- One Community Member or Retired Educator
