Mar. 24 – Frederick County Public Schools will redistrict five middle schools in and near Frederick City.
The Crestwood Middle School expansion near Ballenger Creek, which will add 300 seats, is the cause of the redistricting.
The district attempts to balance enrollment between Crestwood and the surrounding middle schools of Ballenger Creek, Gov. Thomas Johnson, Monocacy, and West Frederick.
According to a news release from FCPS on Thursday, the redistricting may also impact the elementary and high schools in those feeder patterns.
The complete list of schools whose attendance regions might change by the start of the 2024–2025 academic year is provided below:

According to the FCPS statement, elementary and middle school attendance zone changes will try to “streamline feeder patterns.”
