Rockingham County Schools will undergo redistricting with the opening of three new schools over the next three years.
Cub Run Elementary, River Bend Elementary and East Rockingham High School all plan to open consecutively between 2008 and 2010.
Schools superintendent Dr. Carol Fenn says the redistricting proposal goes beyond the new school areas to adjust the entire system.
"We want to look at where we expect anticipated growth, at what school areas and what parts of the county," says Fenn. "We also want to reduce any overcrowding that we have in our schools, just to correct those situations. And use our highway structure as reasonable ways to draw lines for our school district."
