The process of redistricing all of Lexington's public school boundaries, necessitated by new schools, could begin this month.
Mary Wright, chief operating officer for Fayette County Public Schools, said Monday that parents and others should have specifics by late 2014 or early 2015.
She said a steering committee for redistricting could be established after the board's Feb. 24 meeting. Among the proposed members of the committee are school board members, business leaders, Equity Council members, parents, Realtors, home builders, principals and city planning officials.
At the Feb. 24 meeting, board members will vote on several proposed guidelines, including balancing the economic diversity of students in every school and, whenever possible, having students attend a neighborhood school.
Of the redistricting process, Wright said, "I just think its going to take us a while because it's massive."
