Yes it is a hearing on the resistricting with the commossioners and if I want to speak I with get there 30mins before the meeting. The redistricting final decision is April 10 . I think that have already made up their minds and just going thru the steps.
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Sorry typing to fast. There will be a public hearing with the commissioners on the redistricting issues and the final decsion is on April 10. I think they have already made up their minds and just going through the motions.
Education lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Lawyer. replied 6 years ago
Thank you for your follow up.

Basically you can appeal to the commissioner and state your position about the redistricting, but if it appears that a decision had been made, unfortunately it might not make much difference if you and other people from your area speak up against it.

If the redistricting is approved, you would have to consult with a local administrative law attorney who can evaluate your entire situation and see if for some reason this redistricting violates is unlawful or would cause harm if allowed.

If this attorneys finds some legal grounds based on which this redistricting decision can be appealed to the state court, this attorney will be able to file for an injunction to reverse/stop redistricting.

Unfortunately, this type of litigation with the school board and department of education is very costly and there is no guarantee of a successful outcome, so I would suggest that you would form a group of parents/neighbors who feel the same way as you do and also oppose this redistricting decision to form a group and to share the costs of litigation if you decide to challenge this decision through the courts.
