Student Assignment Discussion In North Mecklenburg
North Mecklenburg County residents gathered last week to discuss student assignment in the CMS system. The area’s school board representative, Rhonda Lennon, organized the meeting.
A little about Lennon’s District: It includes four high schools. Two are considered average by state grading standards. Those are Hopewell and North Meck. The others, Mallard Creek and Hough, are higher-performing schools.
Mallard Creek is two-thirds black, 16 percent white, and 9 percent Latino.
Hough is 76 percent white, 11 percent black, and 7 percent Latino. The school is located in Cornelius, where the student assignment meeting was held. A full house of parents and CMS Superintendent Ann Clark attended. So did WFAE’s Gwendolyn Glenn.
