House votes to support Wilmington school redistricting

House lawmakers have passed legislation endorsing a proposed school redistricting plan for Wilmington while not committing any funding for the effort.

The measures cleared the Democrat-led House with no Republican support Wednesday.

Wilmington is currently served by four school districts. The redistricting plan centers on moving inner-city students from the Christina district and into the Red Clay district in hopes of improving educational outcomes for minority students.

But many details of the plan have yet to be worked out, and several lawmakers have expressed concerns over the potential price tag.

In passing a required resolution supporting the redistricting, House members also approved a separate bill asserting that final legislative approval of a plan will not bind the state or the school districts to any specific action regarding funding.
