Multi-Year Student Assignment Plan


On October 14, 2019, the Moore County Board of Education adopted a multi-year student reassignment plan to begin with the 2020 school year. An Advisory Committee for the district's Multi-Year Student Assignment Plan provided input throughout the first two iterations of a proposed plan both of which were presented to the Board of Education and for public review and comment in April and May respectively.

A third iteration of the plan, the Superintendent's Recommended Multi-Year Student Assignment Plan, was presented to the Board of Education on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. A public hearing was held on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 6 p.m. at Union Pines High School to collect public comment. Technical adjustments and other amendments to the Superintendent's recommended plan were evaluated and adopted at the School Board's October 7 Work Session/Special Called Meeting and final action was taken at the Regular Business Meeting on Monday, October 14, 2019.

The district 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.
