HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Henrico County Public Schools will delay the school division's comprehensive redistricting process due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Gov. Northam’s stay-at-home order, in effect until at least June 10, the school board announced Monday that they will delay the redistricting process.

The final stages of the process —including presentations, public hearings and the vote which had been scheduled for May 28 —will occur at an undetermined time when the public can once again be engaged.

"The Board will continue to review the committee’s work so that when public hearings are rescheduled, the Board will be ready to respond to public feedback with revisions to the proposed maps as may be necessary, and ultimately bring the process to a vote," the board said in a press release.

Updates about the redistricting process will continue to be posted as they become available on the school division’s redistricting webpage.
