Shelby County Schools Board Members approved a slate of rezoning proposals for the 2014-15 school year. The proposals involve students who currently attend schools that will become part of a municipal district in 2014-15 and reside in unincorporated Shelby County, either in the Memphis reserve or a rural reserve area, as well as in South Cordova.
"We recognize how difficult this process is for families, and we want to offer as much stability as we can going forward," Hopson stated. "The municipal districts may have opportunities for these students to remain with their current schools, but it is also our responsibility to make sure a quality education is available if they remain with Shelby County Schools.”
District staff and Board Members gave presentations and heard feedback from families in all communities impacted by the rezoning proposals earlier this month. The feedback helped inform a number of decisions, including the decisions to convert Woodstock Middle into a high school for grades 6-10 and send students currently attending Bartlett High to Cordova High and Bolton High. The originally proposed Bartlett High to Ridgeway High rezoning was removed.
