BALTIMORE COUNTY - Baltimore County Public Schools is starting the process of defining the boundaries for central and northeast area middle schools.

BCPS has scheduled five committee meetings through March 29 and two public information sessions on March 8 and 9 to solicit public feedback about boundary line changes under consideration.

The schools included in this area are Cockeysville, Dumbarton, Golden Ring, Middle River, Parkville, Perry Hall, Pine Grove, Ridgely, and Stemmers Run middle schools, and Loch Raven Academy.

The boundary study will establish an attendance area for the new Northeast area middle school and expand the attendance area for Pine Grove Middle School once its latest addition is completed.

By moving students to the new Northeast area middle school and increasing attendance at Pine Grove middle, BCPS hopes to relieve overcrowded schools in Baltimore County.

The first committee meeting will be held on Thursday, January 12, at Parkville High School.

Additional committee meetings will follow on Wednesday, January 25; Thursday, February 9; Wednesday, February 22; and Wednesday, March 29. All sessions will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Parkville High School.

Residents are invited to attend the committee meetings or view the proceedings online. For more information or to view the link for online committee hearings, visit the Central and Northeast Area Middle School Boundary Study website.
