The same rules will apply at the second meeting, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Coffee Creek Baptist Church, 1650 Coffee Creek Road.

Mays, one of the two board members on the redistricting committee, said the process has been mainly concerned with growth and development in the area while affecting students as little as possible. Mays said there has been little feedback from parents compared to the 2009 redistricting process but said he hopes that will change with the public forums.

“We hope we find good input,” he said. “We want to seek parent input. And people want to know what things are being done. We're going to listen to feedback and if there's anything that needs to be done, we'll take it into consideration.”
