Feds OK BSISD district maps

December 28, 2011

Big Spring Independent School District officials have received federal approval of its new single-member district maps.

BSISD Business Manager Debbie Green said the district recently received a “notice of no objection” to its redistricting plan from the U.S. Department of Justice, meaning the new boundaries will take effect in time for the 2012 trustee elections.

Population and demographic shifts forced the school district to make changes to its single-member districts. Since the 2000 Census, that all-important demographic makeup has changed well beyond federally approved limits.
