Rezoning 2020

  • RPS will be implementing new school zones for the 2020-2021 school year. Click here to view the interactive map of the new zones approved by the Richmond City School Board. Make sure you've checked the box for "Board Approved" elementary, middle, or high school zones.

    Information and resources will continue to be added and updated via the menu on the left.

    There is a feedback form that we encourage you to fill out to share your comments, concerns, and suggestions for RPS to take into consideration. This form will be live during the entire rezoning process and you may provide feedback more than once. All feedback will be publicly shared with the Rezoning Advisory Committee, School Board, Administration, our rezoning consultant, and willl be made available to the general public.

    Rezoning Goals and Objectives:

    1. Engage the community by:
      • Providing multiple authentic opportunities for all stakeholders to share their ideas and provide feedback
      • Creating an advisory body of community representatives to help guide the process
      • Engaging local historians and other community leaders
      • Reviewing and leveraging past rezoning efforts
    2. Develop new zones for RPS schools that improve the student experience by:
      • Ensuring safe, equitable, and more timely transportation; and leveraging natural boundaries when possible
      • Increasing student diversity of all kinds within schools
      • Alleviating overcrowding and minimizing, if not eliminating, the use of trailers
      • Planning for future student population trends and future development
      • Expediting student placement in modern facilities after rezoning through a variety of measures including new school construction, as well as potential consolidations and closures (revised)
    3. Develop a plan for the disposition of vacant and non-instructional (owned/rented) properties in an effort to:
      • Raise funds for new school construction
      • Develop mutually beneficial partnerships with Richmond cultural institutions
      • Focus more time, energy, and money on our core work: teaching and learning
    4. Update the RPS Facilities Plan based on Goals 1, 2, and 3.
