  • School board votes to drop redistricting plans

    The Bullitt County Public School Board has voted to drop any plans for redistricting students in the 2017-18 school year.

    A large crowd came to voice opposition to the options presented.

    By a 4-1 vote, the board opted to not bring up any redistricting proposals until at least next year.

    Overcrowding in several schools in the eastern part of the county led to a massive redistricting proposal, which would affect over half the schools to some degree.
