Student Realignment Overview


    Middle School Realignment Website

    Cabarrus County Schools will open Roberta Road Middle School in August 2022. In order to prepare for the opening of the new middle school, a community-engaged realignment study is currently under way.

    Cabarrus County Schools has partnered with Cropper GIS Consulting to assist with the study and recommendations for realignment. New attendance boundaries will be created using guiding principles and criteria established by the school district. The realignment of attendance zones is expected to impact the following middle schools: Harold E Winkler, Northwest Cabarrus, Harris Road, JN Fries, CC Griffin, and Hickory Ridge. The realignment may also have slight impacts to Elementary and High School zones in order to balance utilization, plan for future growth, and align feeders.

    Public information sessions will be held during the study to introduce the project and gather feedback from the community. To learn more about the project, access the draft realignment options under review, and submit feedback please visit the middle school realignment website.
