Speak your mind on zones for attendance
By Times Staff Writer
Published February 2, 2008
If you have concerns with the proposed attendance zones for Pasco County's two newest schools, you can offer recommendations and opinions to the School Board when it meets at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Crews Lake Middle School in Shady Hills will take all fifth-graders who attend Mary Giella and Shady Hills elementary schools. Veterans Elementary School in Wesley Chapel will take about 450 students from Quail Hollow Elementary and another 300 students from Seven Oaks Elementary. "It's not a done deal," district planning director Chris Williams said. "I always encourage people that if they're not satisfied with the boundary, go to the School Board." The board will review the proposals but is not scheduled to approve them until Feb. 19. To view the boundary maps, visit the school district's web page at www.pasco.k12.fl.us and click on the link under "What's New?" on the right side of the page.
