Charles County Announces Temporary School Assignment Changes

Superintendent James E. Richmond has temporarily changed school assignments for students moving into new developments in the Theodore G. Davis Middle School and North Point High School areas and asked for a longer-term plan from a redistricting committee.

The Superintendent told the Board of Education at its Nov. 18 meeting that Davis and North Point are overcrowded and need relocatable classrooms to accommodate both existing enrollment and relief from future growth.

Effective Dec. 1, Richmond has reassigned all new high school and middle school students in an area called Block 3782, which includes the new Scotland Heights development opposite Davis Road on Route 228 in Waldorf. Scotland Heights has 450 building lots; however, no houses have been built. Middle school students moving into Scotland Heights will attend Matthew Henson Middle School, and high school students will attend Westlake High School.
