Huntsville City School Board Election Guide

If you’re a parent with kids in the Huntsville City School system you probably already know there’s a BIG election coming up on August 26, 2014.

Just like in previous local elections that specifically affect families, Rocket City Mom has compiled a series of posts about each candidate running for Huntsville City School Board. We asked them to answer the same nine questions, and have run their responses each unedited and as they have sent them to us.

  • I am looking forward to reading the candidates responses. Thank you for doing this report. It will be helpful to many. I wanted to make a comment that Whitesburg P-8 families are primarily in District 3 but there is a small group also in District 2 as well as another group in District 4 which is where you listed Whitesburg P-8 in your article. Yes, three districts! Many people do not realize this. 🙂 Thank you!!

    • Wow – thanks Alicia! I didn’t realize that. On the HCS website it just says Whitesburg PS is in district 4, then we got emails it was district 3! I’ll edit.

  • Thanks for this wonderful resource! Just FYI – I am zoned for Whitesburg P8, but am in district 3. So the school list in that regard might be confusing to some. I had to go to the city’s website to double check my zone after seeing it listed as zone 4 here.

  • Schools are listed according to their physical location, not the residence of their students. Yes, many schools serve students from districts outside their physical addresses. Remember schools (in most cases – yes, some are being relocated now) do not move; district boundaries change according to census counts.
