The school system has created a map that includes the proposed changes, but Roberts said it also requires board approval.
The map shows two sections of Overbrook's current attendance area that would be shifted to Holz or Kenna. The proposed changes would move some residents on Upper and Lower Ridgeway roads, Loudon Heights Road, Lindy Road and others from Overbrook to Holz.
Residents near Rolling Hills Circle, Greystone Road and Lakeview Road would move from Overbrook to Kenna.
An interactive map of the current and proposed attendance areas is available at dailymail.com.
The changes would send 35 to 38 students from Overbrook to Kenna or Holz, Roberts said. The additional students would put Kenna close to capacity and increase overall class sizes at both schools, she said.
"Their class sizes range right now from 13 to 21 at Kenna, and Holz is about 16 to 22. Redistricting would put them more in the 17 to 25 kind of range," Roberts said.
According to data on the state Department of Education website, Kenna had an enrollment of 182 last year and Holz, 285.
The maps and school sizes were discussed thoroughly as well Thursday night. Even after the examination and questions, it wasn't exactly clear to everyone how redistricting would affect their particular address.
"We looked at that map pretty closely, and our street's not on there," Sutton said, adding that he thinks his home would still fall in the Overbrook attendance area.
Principals at all three affected elementary schools are receptive to the plan, Roberts said. Another local school, Weberwood Elementary School, is not included in the plan because it's already full, Roberts said.
Both she and Duerring said redistricting will take work but could be a solution for years to come. However, there are already overcrowding issues at other South Hills schools: Ruthlawn Elementary School parents recently voiced concerns about proposed annexation into South Charleston, because they feared their students would not be able to attend John Adams Middle School.
John Adams is already bursting at the seams, and the county had to enact a policy that prevented any further transfers into the local George Washington High School. Considering these problems, Sutton and others at the meeting said a new school could be the only answer.
"The true solution is building," Sutton said.
Jordon and fellow board members Pete Thaw and Bill Raglin said they could approve a redistricting plan that is done effectively and with community approval.
Any plan would need approval by the board and the state Department of Education, Roberts said.
