Issues in the district

Potential new high school

Iredell-Statesvilles Schools is considering adding a sixth high school to the district. The potential new school would relieve overcrowding at Troutman and Mooresville schools, especially South Iredell High School (SIHS) and Lake Norman High School. School board members already voted in February 2014 to use open classrooms at the Career Academy & Technical School to ease overcrowding at SIHS. Any construction on the site would have to wait until Iredell County commissioners decide to put a bond referendum for school facilities on the ballot, and it passes in a public vote. District leaders have said it would be considered in November 2014. The district acquired the property where the school would be located in July 2013.[3]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[7]
