NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The Orleans Parish School Board is hosting a series of meetings throughout November to get the public’s opinion on the newly drafted maps for the redistricting process.

The school board is encouraging the public to share their opinions on the maps of the newly drawn boundaries. Every ten years, redrawn every 10 years for seven of the board districts, balancing them in population according to local, state, and federal rules of the process.

The school board says community involvement is a key part of establishing a fair and impartial process. Those in attendance will be able to view the maps.

Anyone looking to submit a question can do so by visiting the Redistricting Engagement Portal at www.nolapublicschools.com, choosing Community then Redistricting in the dropdown menu on the home page, or calling 504-919-4675.
