• Multi-Year Student Reassignment Plan 


    Moore County Schools is in the process of defining student assignment areas for all schools in Moore County. An Advisory Committee for the district's Multi-Year Student Assignment Plan has provided input throughout the process, as well as helped the district communicate the progress of the School Board to their respective communities, and promoted engagement of their communities in the process.

    The district has retained the services of Numerix, a consulting firm, that provides data-driven decision support for public school planners. The two primary consultants on the project are:

    • Michael Miller, former Program Manager at the Operations Research and Education Laboratory (OREd) at NC State
    • Laura Evans, retired Senior Director of Student Assignment for Wake County Public School System

    Advisory Committee Membership included the principals from the district's three high schools, Stefanie Phillips from Pinecrest High School, Jenny Purvis from North Moore High School and Andy McCormick from Union Pines High School. Additional committee members included Central Office staff, and a teacher and a parent from each impacted school. 

    Below is a timeline of events related to the student assignment plan process.
