Coweta Schools seeking input on possible East Coweta, Northgate Redistricting
From Coweta County Schools Press Release
The Coweta County School System is considering a redistricting of approximately 400 to 450 students from the East Coweta High School district into the Northgate High School district, to take effect in the 2021-22 school year following a proposed classroom expansion at Northgate High School.
The superintendent held meetings for public discussion and comment on this proposal on October 1 and October 3 at Northgate High School and East Coweta High School, respectively, and met with both high schools’ school councils to share information regarding the proposal. The school system plans to make a decision no later than December or January regarding redistricting.

Parent and public input at the link above will be taken online through October 18.
If approved, redistricted areas would be drawn from neighborhoods between Georgia Highway 34 and Lower Fayetteville Road, though such a redistricting would not involve all neighborhoods in that area. Rising 10th through 12th graders in the year of implementation (2021-2022) would be grandfathered, and would be allowed to stay at East Coweta High if families provide transportation.
This proposal is being considered in order to provide room for student enrollment growth and better utilize facilities at Coweta County’s high schools. East Coweta High is currently Coweta County’s largest and fastest-growing high school. If approved, the new district lines would be drawn in 2020 with parent feedback, and would take effect in the school year beginning in August, 2021.
