After more than six months of deliberation, the Calvert County Board of Education decided on a redistricting plan to alleviate the severely overcrowded Beach Elementary School at a special meeting on Tuesday, March 25, at 4 p.m.

Members of the board voted 4-1 in approval of plan D, which will move 166 students total from Beach Elementary to Windy Hill Elementary and Plum Point Elementary. Windy Hill will receive 49 students, while Plum Point will receive the remaining 117. The capacity at Beach Elementary will then be 566 students, 10 percent over the school’s state-rated capacity.

Board Vice President Kelly McConkey voted in opposition.

The change will take effect on the first day of the next school year, Tuesday, Aug. 19.
