  • Meadowlane Primary and Meadowlane Intermediate to Discovery Elementary School

    The intent of this proposal is to adjust attendance boundaries ahead of significant growth anticipated in the area south of U.S. Route 192 and west of Interstate 95. In this scenario, predominately vacant land would be redistricted prior to any development, minimizing the affects on existing students. 

     

    • There are currently two families affected, a total of three students. These families haved recieved a letter explaining the possible change.
    • This proposal is proactively shifting attendance boundaries before expected residential growth.
    • All students would reside outside of the 2-mile walking area and would be eligible for a bus.
    • As new homes are constructed, buses to Discovery Elementary would be added.
