While many neighborhood families attend Cotswold as their home school, as an IB magnet school, Cotswold is ‘home’ to children from all over Charlotte. That means while Cotswold School lies within the current boundaries of the School Board District 5, County Commission District 5 and City Council District 1, not every family at Cotswold School lives within these districts.
So as a parent or caregiver with questions for the Board of Education, the Board of County Commissioners, or other elected body that impacts your child’s education, whom do you call? The website for the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections has an easy-to-use tool that finds those names and numbers using your current address. Here’s how:
Go to http://charmeck.org/mecklenburg/county/BOE/voter/Pages/Voting-Info-Lookup.aspx and you’ll be prompted to enter your house number and street name and click “go”. From there, you’ll be given possible matches to your address. Click the correct address and the site will take you directly to a page listing elected officials specific to your voting district. This page contains links to the elected officials’ websites, with phone numbers, postal addresses and email addresses.
