Board District Reapportionment
The FWCS Board of School Trustees approved reapportioning Board district boundaries in accordance with Indiana Code in April 2012. Board districts must be relatively equal in size, and the 2010 Census data show reapportionment is necessary. Under the Board's proposal, eight precincts would change districts: Precincts 575, 516 and 369 would move from District 1 to District 4; Precinct 577 would move from District 1 to District 5; Precincts 306, 308 and 313 would move from District 2 to District 1; and Precinct 298 would move from District 1 to District 2. Affected voters in Districts 2, 3 and 5 will experience the change in the Nov. 2012 election. Districts 1 and 4 will see the change in Nov. 2014.
