There is a public discussion about the proposed Richmond Public Schools (RPS) rezoning as it impacts various neighborhoods in the area including but not limited to, Westover Hils, Forest Hill, Woodland Heights, and Springhill. The meeting takes place tonight, September 30th, at 6:30 PM at the Woodland Heights Baptist Church, 611 W 31st Street.
Three of the four proposed options rezone all of Woodland Heights and Springhill neighborhoods from Westover Hills Elementary to Blackwell Elementary. The last option (option B1) sends all of Springhill to Blackwell and breaks Woodland Heights into two, sending some children to Westover Hills and others to Blackwell.
Dr. Sapini has been invited to join in the discussion in advance of the public hearing hosted by RPS on October 10 at the Southside Center. Rezoning information is available at https://www.rvaschools.net/2020-2021-rps-rezoning. RPS also has a feedback form for public comments at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScksXtKGye5aLOle-fm1Ov5MtK_9efzfZgx8VNvnyG1PV0QDg/viewform.
