Where can I find a map of the local school boundaries that determine where a child goes to school?

If you live in or around Wilmington, you can find out online. Go to the New Hanover County Schools Web site. On the left-hand list of links, click “Find Your Child’s School,” then “School Assignments for 2009-2010.” The site lets you search by grade level and street name, or you can check out their district maps for elementary, middle, year-round and high schools at the bottom of the page.

In Brunswick County, head to the Brunswick County Schools Web site (www.brunswick.k12.nc.us) and click “Quick and Useful Links” on the left. Under “Parental Information” hit “Which school will my children attend?” and let your fingers do the walking — the site lets you search by street address to view all schools in your district area, as well as the school’s distance from your home and available bus stops. To view a map of the district, click the school code, then hit the “View the Map” button at the middle right of the next page.

For Pender parents, head to www.pendercountyschools.net, and select “Bus Stop Lookup” in the drop-down menu under “Parents” at the top of the page. After that, the site works the same way for Pender school as for Brunswick (see above).
