Elementary School Redistricting

On June 12, 2017 the Board of Education voted to adopt an elementary redistricting plan for the 2018-2019 school year (the year after next school year). The Board approved redistricting plan scenario two (2) with the following modifications:
  • Rosewood Drive will continue to be in the Hebron Avenue School district; 
  • Buttonball Lane School scheduled walkers (students currently not scheduled for transportation service) will continue to be in the Buttonball Lane School district; 
  • Fifth graders will be grandfathered into their current schools with no transportation provided (parents can choose to keep fifth graders in their current schools as long as they agree to provide transportation). 

Current Redistricting Timeline

Over the coming months, staff members from the elementary schools will be reassigned as necessary to support our students at each school. As much as possible, staff members will follow students who are transitioning to a new school, to help ease the transition. Each elementary school will also begin planning events and procedures to welcome their new students and their families into the elementary school community. 

Background Information

On December 12, 2016 the Glastonbury Board of Education made the difficult decision to close Eastbury Elementary School following the 2017-2018 school year. The vote was based on declining student enrollment and the Board's commitment to provide a high quality education for students at a reasonable cost to taxpayers.

Redistricting of elementary schools will take place for the 2018-2019 school year. The Board of Education reviewed three elementary school redistricting options prepared by a consultant as well as parent comments and feedback. The three draft maps and information were first presented to the public at the March 27, 2017 Board of Education meeting. 

Redistricting Information Nights were held at each elementary school throughout April 2017. The Board Chair and Superintendent of Schools shared information and displayed large boards of the maps for parents who reviewed the options, asked questions, and  provided feedback. The feedback form was also posted on this site throughout April. At the May 22, 2017 Board Meeting, all parent comments and preferences as well as Board questions were made public in the Board of Education packet and on this site. The Superintendent also conducted a brief presentation providing answers to Board of Education questions as well as reoccurring parent redistricting requests. A Public Hearing on the Redistricting Plans was then held on June 5th in Town Council Chambers for the public to continue to share their ideas and preferences. At the June 12th Board Meeting, following additional public comment, Board members voted on the final plan with modifications as outlined above.
